But how do we measure the vitality of the arts?
The National Arts Index is designed to do just that. The National Arts Index is an annual single-number score -- distilled from 76 national indicators -- that measures the strength of the arts in America.
Arts Alliance Illinois is proud to present a discussion of the National Arts Index in partnership with the Cultural Policy Center at the University of Chicago, the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, and the Arts & Business Council.
Here are the details:

Historians frequently assert that women artists fared better in Chicago than New York or Los Angeles. Despite this perceived reality, many women participated in collaborative groups, such as women artists’ art associations and cooperatives in order to create greater visibility for themselves. This presentation will examine this history, as well as the reasons why they chose to forge these alliances in a city well known for its warm reception of female artists.
Joanna Gardner-Huggett is an associate professor of history of art and architecture at DePaul University where she specializes in 20th century art and feminist art and activism.
