Booming Lubbock arts district impacts economy

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Lubbock arts district is booming.

A study conducted by ARTS Lubbock shows a $100 million impact during 2017. The Lubbock Chamber of Commerce held a news conference explaining the results and how utilizing art promotes education and a better Lubbock.

"So, you know, you make that investment in the arts, you're not investing in a frill or an extra, you're investing in an industry that provides cultural and economic benefits. It's good for local residents, it's good for local businesses," Randy Cohen, with Americans for the Arts, said.

Faculty from Texas Tech's School of Art hosted an exhibition as part of the conference.
