The presentation looked at new research from one of the five competitive NEA research grants to examine and interpret data from the 2008 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts and previous SPPA surveys (1982, 1992, 2002). Jennifer Novak-Leonard heads the project looking at relationships between attendance and personal arts creation. Her research examines new ways of measuring arts participation and the implications for arts organizations' practice and for policy.
A presentation and discussion with Richard A. Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Vanderbilt University
Baby Boomers are “cultural omnivores,” according to sociologist Richard A. Peterson. To them, serious art means the Beatles and B.B. King as much it does Beethoven and Bizet. With more choices and less time, they enjoy opera and classical music as occasional options amid a wide range of what they consider culture. They don’t associate supporting the fine arts with gaining elite status, a motivator that drove previous generations to the opera and symphony halls.
