Bennington, Vermont 
ranked #3
in the United States as


"Most Arts Vibrant Small Community"

SMU’s National Center for Arts Research (NCAR) today released its third annual Arts Vibrancy Index, which ranks more than 900 communities across the country.

We are pleased to share with you that Bennington, VT Micro Area has ranked #3 on the list of top 10 most arts vibrant small communities (areas with an urban core of 10,000-50,000 people). The overall index is composed of three dimensions: supply, demand and government support. Supply is assessed by the total number of arts providers in the community, including the number of arts and culture organizations and employees, independent artists, and entertainment firms. Demand is gauged by the total nonprofit arts dollars in the community, including program revenue, contributed revenue, total expenses and total compensation. Lastly, the level of government support is based on state arts dollars and grants and federal arts dollars and grants.
