- Did you know that the arts generate $5.1 BILLION for the Texas economy? That the arts contribute nearly $320 MILLION in state sales tax? That at-risk high school students who complete more than one art class are half as likely to drop out? These and other dynamic data reflect the power of the arts to grow the economy of Texas and help students succeed! Check out the Texas Cultural Trust’s 2015 "Invest in the Arts" study here!
