Denver, where even the airport is artistic.
Another day, another listicle ranking U.S. cities on fatness, fashion
and now, where to be an artist.
, a social network-type site, published
its findings in late January on where an artist might have the best success, and Denver
takes number five in its top 10.
To calculate what seems a nebulous question, MyLife took the top 50 most populous U.S. cities and ranked them according to a handful of criteria, like cost of living, people already working in the arts industry there, the number of arts and cultural attractions and things like population age and household income.
The top city is Atlanta
, followed by Seattle
, San Francisco
. After Denver, it's Nashville
and Las Vegas
In a longer list, Colorado Springs
popped up as number 36, coming in after Virginia Beach
and before Detroit
For Denver, MyLife writes: "Its statistics also speak for themselves, as Denver ranked seventh in the percentage of the population working in the arts industry, as well as in the number of galleries and museums to visit."
Add to that news like MCA Denver
's October Mark Mothersbaugh retrospective
, done by the Devo
founder himself, and the Denver Art Museum
's upcoming Modern Masters
blockbuster, and you've got to hand it to the city up north.
