How your contribution will help:

San Diego Visual Arts Network is a database of information produced to improve the clarity, accuracy and sophistication of discourse about San Diego's artistic and cultural life and is dedicated to the idea that the Visual Arts are a vital part of the health of our city. Did you know:

The SD Visual Arts Network (SDVAN) helps create synergy among all the visual arts. There are only 72 organizations involved with the Commission for Arts and Culture for the city of San Diego. The SDVAN connects more than 1,000 organizations and more than 1200 artists and is the largest resource ever brought together to support the visual arts community of San Diego. Its potential for influence within the entire community is very great.

Art is big business and growing all the time.
- Total revenue from fine art auctions worldwide rose 37% to close to USD 3.5 billion. With a number of major sales in the modern art segment, we are experiencing a very successful year for contemporary art, which doubled its revenue of the previous year.
- According to Artprice's econometric data, prices on the contemporary art segment rose 17% over the twelve months with the segment accounting for 6.4% of total art revenue compared to 4.4% the previous year.
- In FY 2013 arts and cultural attractions brought at least 1.6 million cultural tourists to the San Diego region, who contributed $186 million to the local economy.
- Cultural tourists spend 45% more money than other tourists during their visits. They take longer trips and are more likely to shop and pursue other educational activities.
- San Diego County 's nonprofit arts and culture industry activity supports 6,156 full time equivalent jobs and $108.8 million in salaries for arts and culture jobs.

- For our children, Arts Education can enhance scholastic achievement, creative thinking, social skills, self-esteem, attendance at school, cognitive performance, leadership skills and multicultural sensitivity.

SDVAN contributes to this increasing economic blossoming by giving access to information for free to all resources and visitors of the site.
