CEO Currents: Include the arts in your holiday plans at home or on the road

POSTED BY Alecia Kintner ON 11/24/2015

Holiday cheer often means holiday travel, and for me, this year is no exception. Although time is tight and the to-do list long, part of my planning is also about what cultural events and arts-related places and spaces we’ll be hitting while I’m there. I’m not alone in checking out local arts when I travel, and - as they make great memories for themselves - arts travelers also make significant economic contributions to the communities they visit.
