One more reason why Art matters: A civil society.

This NEA funded study by political scientist Kelly LeRoux from the University of Chicago looked at how the arts impct civil society and found that those who attend arts events are more community-minded and engaged. They are also more tolerant of differences between themselves and others -- and more willing to help those in need.

Art makes us more humane, which in turn makes for a more civil society.
