Art Market Research Proposal
Help support the Austin art community by endorsing our proposal to work in concert with the city of Austin’s Economic Development Department to establish baseline economic measurements unique to Austin’s visual marketplace. The proposal seeks to conduct market analysis and consumer mapping to bolster Austin’s underdeveloped cultural visual arts sector. Once a baseline market size data set is established, individual groups or trade associations, such as the Art Alliance, can build market trends, growth rates, opportunities, profitability, cost structures, distribution channels, and success factors. The development tools enabled by this proposal will help artists, galleries, non-profits, museums, and fairs, while also acting as a lure for entrepreneurs and investors.
