The Orange County Business Committee for the Arts is planning a study of the economic impact of the arts. It would be the first survey of its kind in the county, according to local arts officials. Similar studies elsewhere have been used to show the fiscal benefits of the arts to a community and to help rally more private and public arts funding. James Doti, a professor of economics at Chapman College who will help the committee with the study, said he hopes to begin work on the review within a month.

The ceremony recognizing "outstanding" arts support by local businesses routinely makes society, arts and business news. It is practically synonymous with the committee itself.
