In Summer of 2018, PS released the Philly Artist Census for three months in an attempt to get an accurate picture of the resources, challenges and livelihoods of practicing visual artists in Philadelphia. Our motivation to assemble this information was and continues to be to clarify myths from truths about the greater Philly artist community. We received over 500 responses from the Philadlphia artist community.
As of November 2018, we are still in the process of crunching the data and preparing a visual report that we plan to release, along with the original data set, to the public. We plan to release these results in Spring 2019.
