After more than a year enduring the pandemic, the arts and cultural industries remain among the hardest hit by the economic crises inflicted by COVID-19. New data released today by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) describe the national and state-level contributions of the arts and cultural sector to the nation’s gross domestic product in 2019. These data from the Arts and Cultural Production Satellite Account (ACPSA) show the sector as thriving just before the pandemic struck.
