I want to renew my plea for ALL artists to register with Dun and Bradstreet. The DUNS number identifies businesses across the country, which tells more than tax and census reporting can. Americans for the Arts uses the number to show the strength of creative business nationally. It’s a pretty easy process to register (and as far as I can tell leads to no spam or junk mail). Do it!
You can see a report by the Americans for the Arts on Creative Industries in Oklahoma. While there are impressive numbers, we know there are a lot more visual artists out there than indicated!
