Research Center for Arts and Culture (RCAC).   “Artists, arts institutions, academics, researchers, private funders, policy makers and students all use RCAC research and resources for a variety of purposes. Although the data are distributed to a wide array of constituents, a frequent request for data comes from individual artists. These data show that many artists have similar career paths, goals, and obstacles, particularly in relation to their status in society.”
