This report looks at the infrastructure for arts and cultural support in the United States which is complex and adaptive. Citizens who enjoy the arts can choose from a wide array of drama, visual and media arts, dance, music, and literature available in formal and informal settings - theaters, museums, and concert halls, but also libraries, schools, places of worship, open-air venues, restaurants or nightclubs, and, via technology, at home or on the move.

In the last two decades, the number of arts and cultural organizations has grown, even as revenues from sales and attendance have risen to all-time high levels. These trends coincided with growth in publishing, broadcasting, and other media industries, and the arrival of new technology platforms for arts creation.
