About the Alexandria Arts Alliance
The Alexandria Arts Alliance works to advance the arts in Alexandria because a strong arts community equals an economically strong and vibrant city. The City of Alexandria recently approved a dynamic citywide Arts & Culture Master Plan which affirms the importance of the arts to the city’s economic vitality and quality of life.
Arts and cultural organizations are vital to fuel creativity, enhance quality of life, and attract and retain the talent we need in Alexandria for continued growth. The recent Arts and Economic Prosperity 5 study conducted by Americans for the Arts shows that arts and culture is a $111.8 million industry in Alexandria supporting 2,628 full-time equivalent jobs, generating over $56 million in household income to local residents, providing $7.5 million in local and state government revenue and educating our children to compete in the 21st century.
