ACHF Arts Access
More Minnesotans, especially those in the Southwest Minnesota Region, will be able to participate in the arts.We will have a People’s Choice ballot available at the unveiling asking everyone in attendance to vote for their favorite chair. We will ask, on the ballot, a couple other questions such as how did they hear about it? Where are they from? This will give us a reasonably accurate count of how many people attended the unveiling and also let us know if our publicity was effective. We will also be able to get a good count of how many attend the auction. We will consider it successful if the turnout is large and the chairs bring a good remuneration for the artists. Another measure of our success is if there is no vandalism to the chairs while they are on display.
The project was a huge success and went very much as planned. We had thought we would put the chairs at different locations around Spicer but decided for security reasons to leave them all in the downtown city park. They made a stronger statement when grouped together. This project gave our organization a lot of visibility. We put the chairs on a flatbed trailer and had them in the Spicer parade over July 4th. The strength was the public recognition that our local artists received. Over 10,000 total people served.
