Cleveland should be up there, though I'm not surprised that it isn't. We have one of the best art museums in the country with works from Matisse, Monet, Van Gogh, renaissance masters, etc. It is also currently undergoing a $400 million expansion. We have also recently broken ground on an architecturally interesting new Museum of Modern Art. http://static.dezeen.com/uploads/201...chitects-2.jpg

What the devil @ this list. Chicago is Top 3 in the country, I call foul on the guy who made this horrendous eye bleeding list! Let's all sue this maniac and make a profit!

I think Santa Fe deserved to be on the list. I went there and I saw that it is a very artsy city that is great. I think it deserves the number 2 spot, while New York definitely deserves number 1. Santa Fe is great because it has a lot of Native American Indian art that is not prevalent there and the desert atmosphere really helps inspire a lot I think. Although I do think Chicago deserves Dallas' place because Chicago I think is better in the art department and deserves to be in the top 5.

The only reason Dallas ranked 5th is because of its recently expanded arts district. Quantity over quality.

then that would be very stupid of them. Dallas over Chicago???? really?

Santa Fe over DC??? In Art??? I guess if you take a little town and cluster then with financial institutions it would rank ahead of New York in Finance too.

I can't believe they justified Santa Fe as the artsiest small town you have ever seen.

I have been to Santa Fe twice and I was bored out of my mind.

Maybe per capita, but there is no way Santa Fe should be compared to large cities with major art institutions.

I would expect Fort Worth and Houston to be top 10. I wouldnt expect Dallas or San Antonio on that list.

San Antonio has some great musuems and more performing arts theatre palaces than most cities, they were not knocked down. More than any other texas city. Houston claims more downtown theatres and venues but when you count them San Antonio actually has more. Houston has more musuems though.
