The UK government has released some interesting statistics on 'public engagement with the arts'. Of 9,188 people interviewed, 78.2% have engaged with the arts in the last year. The great majority of these, 63.3%, have engaged with the arts three or more times in the last 12 months. It's true that 'live music' accounts for most of the 'art' here, but 'art display or installation' comes quite high up on the scale. Certainly higher than ballet, anyway.
