What is the MN Arts Count?

The MN Arts Count is a census for individuals who engage in creative expression and for businesses, facilities, and organizations that promote and support creative expression.

From backyard painters to professional musicians—and everyone in between—all Minnesota artists need to be counted.

As part of dedicating funding to the arts from Minnesota's Legacy Amendment, the state legislature has called for the Minnesota State Arts Board to conduct a census of artists and artistic organizations.

Who should participate in the MN Arts Count?

Why should I participate?

For the arts to count for something in Minnesota, we need to count the individuals and businesses, agencies, and organizations who participate in and support all forms of creative expression.

By particpating in the MN Arts Count, individuals and organizations can help demonstrate the many ways Minnesotans participate in the arts and the importance of supporting the arts.

Act today. The MN Arts Count survey will conclude May 31, 2011.
