ACHF Arts Access
We will build relationships with members of groups that have been underserved by the arts.Since this project is open-air and available to all who wish to see it, it is difficult to count the number of people viewing the art based on such measures like ticket sales. The tools used will be primarily through visits to the website, a poll in the local newspaper, and anecdotal comments. The schools will be encouraged to organize field trips to see the art, local businesses such as the bike shop will be asked to create bike routes that incorporate the sculpture stroll, and wellness groups will be asked to promote the stroll as part of a preventative health measure.
As this is open air and accessible to anyone free of charge, it is difficult to say how many people actively participate in the Sculpture Stroll. The placement of the sculptures are such that they are viewed regularly by anyone frequenting downtown Hutchinson. It is hoped that in 6 months we will have a clear measurable outcome to number of visits to the website. The local cable TV channel will also air a segment on the current statues which will stimulate interest.
