Chattanooga a 'Top 25 Arts Destination'

June 14, 2010

CHATTANOOGA, TN -- In the June 2010 issue of AmericanStyle magazine, Chattanooga is ranked as the #4 Mid-sized City on the Top 25 Arts Destinations list.

AmericanStyle, a publication of Rosen Media, is an internationally respected magazine that focuses on contemporary art and craft and is geared toward art collectors.

The population of the mid-sized city category, in which the readers awarded Chattanooga second place, ranges between 100,000 – 499,000. Other cities included in this category are well known for their art venues, including Atlanta, Minneapolis and Miami.

This high ranking is determined by the readers and is a testimony to the value the arts add to Chattanooga. This coverage for the arts in Chattanooga is expected to bring both art enthusiasts and collectors to the community, which will generate revenue, not only for art galleries and art venues, but also for restaurants, lodging and retail stores.
