The arts can be used by county officials to provide solutions to many of the challenges that they face.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Counties can invest in the arts as a means to improve their economies, enrich American cultural and intellectual life, build more aesthetically pleasing communities, promote lifelong learning, protect national heritage and historic preservation and help children succeed, to name a few. Notably, the arts and culture sector represents 4.32 percent of the U.S. gross domestic product -- a higher percentage than tourism (2.6 percent), transportation (2.7 percent) and construction (3.4 percent) -- at $698.7 billion, according to a 2015 report by the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The NACo Arts and Culture Commission demonstrates how the arts can be used by county officials to promote ​​economic development and provide solutions to many of the challenges that they face, through workshop sessions, field trips, special publications, and its annual Arts & Culture awards, which recognize counties working to foster an environment where arts can thrive to create more livable communities.
