326,234 Art Collectors in Canada


Submitted without comment (from the Statistics Canada Report called "Focus on Culture" by Erika Dugas):
Visual arts, including works such as paintings, drawings, carvings, vases and antiques, represented about 4.2% of average expenditures on culture products in 2004. Overall, an average annual expenditure of $61 per household was reported in 2004, with an average of $43 spent on art, carvings and vases. However, only 10% of households reported this type of spending, and fewer than 2% reported expenditures on antiques. Without a doubt, buying art or antiques is an activity pursued by a select few households, who spend proportionally larger amounts when buying such works.
