STAT OF THE WEEK: Atlanta Ranked Best City to be an Artist

20 Feb
Perhaps the most recognizable art in Atlanta and definitely the most wearable, the vaunted Peachtree Road Race t-shirt represents 10 kilometers of effort on the Fourth of July (these 9 tees were assembled into a quilt over the holidays by my dear mother).

Perhaps the most recognizable art in Atlanta and definitely the most wearable, the vaunted Peachtree Road Race t-shirt represents 10 kilometers of effort on the Fourth of July (these 9 tees were assembled into a quilt over the holidays by my dear mother).

In its recent ranking of top places to be an artist, MyLife.com voted Atlanta No. 1. The networking communications site ordered the cities by the following criteria: cost of living (the lower the better), the number of residents 20-34 years of age, the amount of people working in the arts industry, the number of museums and galleries in the city, and the volume of households with income exceeding $200,000.

MyLife.com’s take on the Big A: “Where one might expect to see San Francisco or New York City at the top of this list, Atlanta was a little surprising; but when considering it ranked in the top 15 in all five of our categories, it was certainly deserved. They ranked fourth in number of households making more than 200,000 bucks a year, and despite ranking 15th in cost of living, they still came in below the national average.”
