Hispanics do engage in cultural stuff

So when you go on a trip what exactly do you like to do? Eat, shop, museum hop? For me, I like to do anything new and exciting. Of course I like the usual Latino food and clubbing but I also like to visit the mainstream places of interest. The Philadelphia Cultural Alliance recently published Research Into Action: Pathways to New Opportunities.

According to their study, cultural engagement levels for African Americans and Hispanics are consistently higher than those for Whites. This sort of fits to the national trend that people of color are engaged and their numbers are growing. With cultural attractions like the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Taller Puertorriqueño, the Mural Arts Program and more, Philadelphia seems to be "our" kind of town.

Remember in 2006 when the museum of art had the Tesoros exhibit? That was just truly spectacular. Hopefully one day Philly will get something similar again to this extent.
