The nonprofit arts and culture sector is a $519.8 million industry in New Jersey, supporting 14,342 full-time equivalent jobs and yielding $41 million in local and state government revenue, according to a recent study.

Arts & Economic Prosperity 5, the most comprehensive study of its kind ever conducted in the United States, was conducted by Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education.

ArtPride New Jersey, the state’s largest cross-discipline arts service organization, worked with Americans for the Arts and local partners to examine the financial power of the state’s cultural community.
