TRG Arts Partners with new National Center for Arts Research

TRG Arts is pleased to announce its consulting partnership with
the National Center for Arts Research at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
Southern Methodist University announced yesterday that its Meadows School of the Arts and Cox School of Business are leading a collaboration with the Cultural Data Project (CDP) and numerous other partners to create a National Center for Arts Research (NCAR) at SMU. The center, the first of its kind in the nation, will analyze the largest database of arts research ever assembled, investigate important issues in arts management and patronage, and make its findings available to arts leaders, funders, policymakers, researchers and the general public.

The vision of NCAR is to act as a catalyst for the transformation and sustainability of the national arts and cultural community.

TRG will consult with NCAR to offer insights into how consumers invest their time and money in the arts. From its ongoing study of arts consumer behavior, client work, and management of 19 data network programs across the U.S., TRG regularly publishes its analyses online and at industry conferences.

“NCAR will be a powerful resource for the arts in America,” said Rick Lester, founder and CEO of TRG Arts and a distinguished visiting professor of arts management at SMU’s Meadows School of the Arts. “With the fact-based decision-making capabilities that NCAR makes possible, organizations will be better equipped to develop good fiscal and operational health.”

After a poor year for earned revenue in 2012, Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma (LTO) had rebounded and was experiencing a growth spurt. In 2013, Director of Marketing Danyel Siler had turned her attention to single tickets.

Her hard work had paid off, but season tickets were still a challenge. “Season tickets were steadily declining,” she said. “The season ticket campaign had been done the same way for years, maybe even decades. And we blamed the fall on the trend that subs were declining everywhere. Our executive director, artistic director, and I all knew something needed to change, but we didn’t know what.”
