Great Lakes & Upper South in the News: "In Cleveland, a Model of Economic Viability in the Arts" from the Wall Street Journal

By JOEL HENNING, Cleveland

'Arts and culture is losing its market share of philanthropy," according to the latest National Arts Index, published by Americans for the Arts. But several Cleveland performing-arts and public-media organizations are in better shape than their counterparts around the country because they are part of PlayhouseSquare, a unique business model in downtown Cleveland.

After New York's Lincoln Center, PlayhouseSquare is the second-largest performing arts center in the country by audience capacity. Home to 10 performance spaces with a total of more than 9,000 seats, it attracts more than a million visitors to its approximately 1,000 performing-arts events annually.
