Coloradans visit art galleries, watch movies, see plays, and read books more than almost any other state in the US, according to a wide-ranging study released from the National Endowment for the Arts.
In fact, Colorado ranked number 1 in the percentage of residents who personally perform or create artworks, with 64.6 percent of adults.
Colorado also ranked second in the US for residents who attend films at 68.5 percent of adults, second in the nation for visits to historic buildings, neighborhoods and parks at 41.2 percent, third in reading literature with 59 percent, and third in attendance for live music, theater or dance shows at 44.4 percent.
