WHY:

Is Los Angeles America's Arts Super City? This is the fourth consecutive year that Otis College of Art and Design has commissioned analysis and presented real numbers for the business of creativity in both Los Angeles County and Orange County. The Otis Report on the Creative Economy includes a 5-year employment projection, and investigates the direct and indirect economic impact of industries such as Fine and Performing Arts, Digital Media, Entertainment, Architecture, Interior Design, Fashion, Toy and Communications Arts. On November 10, the report will be presented to the public followed by a panel discussion. The 2010 report is accompanied by a policy brief, "Los Angeles: America's Artist Super City," commissioned by the Center for Cultural Innovation.
