Study Finds Arts Generate Money For Sioux Falls

Study Finds Arts Generate Money For Sioux Falls
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Culture means money.  That's the message from a study released Tuesday by the Sioux Falls Arts Council.

The 2010 study found that non-profits and the arts generate more than $35 million in economic activity in Sioux Falls.  They also create 1,300 jobs and raise $1.4 million for local governments.

"They are investing in an industry that supports jobs, generates revenue and is a cornerstone of tourism. The report shows that the arts mean business," Tim Hoheisel with the Sioux Falls Arts Council said.

The study was directed by Americans for the Arts. It shows that the tourism dollars generate more than $30 million of local income.
