Vermont Arts Council


“Artists form the foundation of a state’s creative environment. Artists act as creators and individual entrepreneurs who provide many of the products and designs that drive innovation and shape a state’s cultural character. Many artists also work as educators, providing training in creative skills and passing on cultural traditions from one generation to the next.”

— from “Why Should Government Support the Arts,” as published in 2014 by the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies (updated 2017).
