KOAA: Study shows art community boosts local economy

A newly released study, Arts and Economic Prosperity III, shows that spending by nonprofit arts groups and their audiences make up nearly $94.7 million of the local economy in Colorado Springs. "Arts are an interesting phenomenon," FAC president and CEO Dr. Michael De Marsche tells KOAA. "They are often, in communities like Colorado Springs, hard to get started, but once you get started, and once they get going, it's hard to stop them." Watch the KOAA video here.
