This update to a 1994 study provides a snapshot of the economic impact and value of the arts and culture sector in 2002, the year prior to the devastating 94 percent reduction in the California Arts Council's budget. While the report documents significant growth in the period 1994 - 2002, it is sad that since 2003 many of the participating organizations have gone out of business and many of the report's advisory committee and Arts Council staff have lost their jobs.
