Houston Arts Alliance: Using Art to Improve Quality of Life
Did you know that Houston is home to more than 500 arts and culture organizations, houses nearly 40,000 individual artists and brings in more than $9 billion from art-related business alone? Needless to say, creativity means a lot for the Houston community. In fact, it's what's helped the Bayou City to be ranked as one of the top 10 travel destinations in 2013 by the New York Times
and to be dubbed as the nation's "Coolest City" by Forbes
The Houston Arts Alliance (HAA) plays a great role in helping Houston remain one of the must-see cities for travelers. In fact, its mission is to improve the quality of life and tourism here in the Bayou City. (Given the city's high popularity, it's safe to say the HAA is doing a mighty fine job, right?)
The HAA also provides more than $3 million in grants to help sustain the community's creative and cultural programs and initiatives.
