Are sports fans ignorant about the arts? Do opera buffs have trouble distinguishing a fastball from a slider? Greta has never been much of a sports fan, but she loves taking in the arts, cultural events, and Broadway shows. I know lots of sports fans who’ve never heard an opera. Are sports and fine art mutually exclusive?
If this is a rule, there’s at least one exception: I love sports, but I also enjoy visiting museums and listening to the symphony. But maybe I’m not as uncommon as it seems. Maybe lots of people enjoy both fine arts and sports. Now’s our chance to find out. This week’s Casual Fridays study asks you both what type of arts activities you like, and what sports. Perhaps we’ll find that certain types of sports fans are more amenable to the arts. Or perhaps we’ll find there’s no relationship at all between sports fans and arts buffs.
But we’ll only know the answer if enough of our readers take the test:
The survey is brief, with just 10 questions. It should take only a minute or two to complete. You have until the morning of Thursday, May 24, to complete your response. There is no limit on the number of respondents.
Don’t forget to come back next Friday to see the results!
