$136.6 Million in Arts Related Spending in 2010

That number comes from a report from the Americans for the Arts, an advocacy organization.  The report, which looked at 182 regions nationwide, also found that the arts in Forsyth County supported 4,769 full-time jobs.  This article about the study on the Arts Council website quotes Mayor Allen Joines as saying the study affirms that the arts are major economic driver in the area; the article also notes that Forsyth County "substantially exceeded the median of similar study regions and the national median."
