The vitality, quality and visibility of the arts will help determine Houston’s success in coming years, according to the 2012 Houston Arts Survey – a dynamic look at Harris County residents’ attitudes and experiences with regard to the area’s arts offerings and opportunities. The survey was released on September 25, 2012 at a conference hosted by the Kinder Institute featuring two panels of local, regional and national arts leaders.
