Arts Education & Arts-Based Economic Development: Sound Investments for Business & Community

Volume 17.1   1998



This paper written from the perspective of a business man shares with you some thoughts about why business needs what the arts teach, and how the business community’s support for the arts can forward economic and social development. I believe it is challenging but worth the effort for art educators to make the case for the arts with the business community both locally and nationally.
