With Broadway, the Whitney, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York, it's hard to imagine how Cleveland compares, but new data found that Cleveland’s arts attendance is almost 90 percent of New York’s.
The only question the data has left to answer is, "Why didn't we put this together before?"
With 100-year-old Cleveland Art Museum ranking 12th in the nation since its $320 million expansion and Playhouse Square housing the world's largest outdoor chandelier, Cleveland's cultural boom is truly in the spotlight (pun very much intended). Additionally, Cleveland Play House was named one of the best regional theaters in the nation, with 1,300 productions performed over the last 100 years. It's clear that Cleveland is artistically comparable to major cities like New York, and we keep growing everyday.
With a new year on the horizon, Cleveland's cultural scene is bound to reach all new heights. Who knows, maybe next year we'll be even higher on the list.
