Who Owns Art?

Twenty percent of adults own an original piece of art--such as a painting, drawing, sculpture, or print, according to the National Endowment for the Arts. Among those who own original art, about one-third bought a piece of art in the past year.

Ownership of original art is highest in the 55-to-64 age group (27 percent), among people with post-graduate education (45 percent), and among those with household incomes of $150,000 or more (also 45 percent).
