Colorado Business Committee For The Arts

Outdoor recreation is a $62 billion a year industry in Colorado.  The arts and culture sector generates $13 billion a year, more than mining or agriculture.

These two economic powerhouses came together at a forum in Golden last week, hosted by the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts.

A panel of leaders from Colorado-based companies like Smartwool, Topo Designs and Icelantic skis talked about how important art is to their products and their sales.
