Something Going Right: Arts in Seattle/Tacoma

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer has today an article on the great number of arts entities per capita in the Seattle-Tacoma region. Per capita, we're first!

One interviewee suggests that the fact that we have a greater number of bookstores per capita than other regions is part of the reason for the art, and someone else cites the critical mass of people doing art in this area. I would add the rain as a contributing factor.

I like this quote from Speight Jenkins, head of the Seattle Opera:

"We have more bookstores than any other city our size," he said. "Readers tend to be educated. That's good for the opera, the ballet, the symphony, the art museums. I'm not sure it helps the zoo."
