Montreal, better than Berlin, not as good as Chicago


Yesterday the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation released a report called the 'Chicago Region Arts Scan' [pdf alert]. I've only had time to read the executive summary [pdf alert], but they state, rather categorically, that there are 147 non-profit visual arts organizations in the Chicago area.

A couple of weeks ago, I pointed out how Montreal quite likely had more art galleries than Berlin. Using the same back of the envelope calculations, I can't imagine more than 120 non-profit arts organizations here in Montreal (62 members of the SMQ, 21 RCAAQ, and 11 university organizations comes out to 94, even if I missed 20% someplace - as Zeke's Gallery would not show up in any of those either we're still at 113) - or in other words. Not Good.
