Duh, really? Stats re: "starving " artists
This short article is interesting. It's about a report commissioned by Artfinder. In the USA, 3/4 of the artists surveyed made $10,000 or less per year from their art. 48.7% made less than $5000.00. No surprise to those in the arts.
Another chart shows # of artists per million of major cities, Miami was #1 and New York was 9. But here's a quote:
"Be that as it many, the Artfinder city ranking is a bit misleading. Miami may have three times as many artists per capita as New York, but New York (population 8.5 million) is also 19.5 times as large as Miami (population 440,000). In raw numbers, the Artfinder survey would suggest that New York has about 1,600 working artists very close to official numbers. Miami would have 250."
