A recent survey found that 16 million dollars are spent annually.

 

Kelly Cannon Miller of the Deshcutes Historical Museum, is member of the "Arts and Culture Alliance" that conducted the survey of its members.

 

"We were really excited about what we found.  We found combined we represent 160 full time jobs in our economy and we're spending 16 million dolalrs on payroll, buying office supplies, all of that is part of economic development."

 

Cannon Miller says they believe that the creative arts in central Oregon is growing and could easily have a bigger economic impact in the future with more investment.
