2015 ADAA Members Survey Reveals the Vital and Diverse Contributions of Art Dealers to the Broader Cultural Community

The Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) today announced the results of the first ever survey of its national membership, providing new insight into dealers’ vital and multi-faceted roles in the cultural landscape. As the nation’s leading non-profit organization of art dealers, the ADAA encompasses 180 members from 25 cities in the U.S., who nurture artistic talent, conduct art historical research and promote scholarship, commission writers and critics, and provide free and direct public access to art experiences across periods and genres.

Approximately 70 percent of ADAA members participated in the 2015 ADAA Members Survey, conducted in early 2016, which was designed to gather information on the diverse activities of dealers beyond the financial art market. Spearheaded by ADAA President Adam Sheffer, the Members Survey is the first effort to gather substantial data on member dealers’ broad cultural contributions. Representing only a portion of the gallerists operating in the United States, the survey results indicate impactful and wide-ranging contributions of art dealers and provide an important perspective on their roles in advancing and sustaining the international arts ecology.
