Here’s the latest information on economic impact of the arts and culture Industry in Texas – quite an impressive rate of return.

• The arts generated $5.9 billion last year for our state’s economy.
• The arts were responsible for the collection of $350 million in state sales tax revenue.
• Texas’ creative sector employs one in 15 Texans – nearly 800,000 workers. That number is expected to increase by 17% or 144,000 new jobs by 2026.
