This research examines public perceptions of artists. This study examines if public opinions of artists have changed since the start of the pandemic and provides insights on current public perceptions of artists, discussed in light of the many challenges catalyzed by the pandemic that have disproportionately impacted segments of artists and relevance to the training of arts administrators. This study utilizes cross-sectional survey data collected from over 2,000 U.S. adults in 2019 and 2022.
