NATIONAL NEWS
 

NEA Research Note on State Arts Participation
The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has released a new research note (www.nea.gov/research/Notes/106.pdf) on state-level arts participation using data from the American Time Use Survey (ATUS) (www.bls.gov/tus). The note contains findings on the percentage of time spent per day by residents in each state attending performing arts events, museums and "other arts/entertainment"; participating in art and crafts activities; and listening to or playing music. Participation statistics in each category for every state are included as detailed tables at the end of the report. The research note builds on prior NEA analysis of the 2008 Survey of Public Participation in the Arts (SPPA) (www.nea.gov/research/2008-SPPA.pdf). Interestingly, analyses of both the ATUS and SPPA show a consistent finding that arts participation rises with education level. (~NASAA Notes, July 2012)

Museums are welcome to join Blue Star Museums throughout the summer.

Grain Elevator Photo Contest

All photographs, with necessary identifying information, will also be added to the files of the State Historical Society of North Dakota, as part of the North Dakota Cultural Resources Survey. The contest opens runs through December 31, 2012.
