This recent Los Angeles Times article reports that arts organizations are using creativity to keep their revenue up during difficult financial times. No stranger to financial crisis, arts organizations have been seeing lower income since 2001, when a series of events including the World Trade Center attacks turned donors’ focus to more humanitarian causes. Since that time, dance companies, museums, symphonies and operas alike have been thinking of new ways to draw in audiences, including fresh approaches to traditional performances and expanded performance experiences. While many organizations have successfully increased attendance, there is a real danger that giving to arts organizations may drop off even further in the coming months. If you’re an arts lover, consider making a donation to one of these highly rated arts organizations and help secure the future of these important institutions.
