Diminishing audiences for the arts? Not according to this article.

This article brings together so many of the issues we discussed in class on Wednesday night; “popular” art vs. art of high artistic quality, integration of electronic media to attract a new generation of arts patrons, etc. Would have liked to have seen a little more exploration, but a pleasant read nonetheless.
Interesting to note that since 1965, the number of U.S. opera companies has increased from 46 to 129. Also, opera audiences have increased by 45% in the past 20 years.
