Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goal is to go back to our original intent of the Studio Tour and keep it for fine arts and artists. We hope that in doing this our attendance increases in all of the locations, not just the downtown area. We will be having guestbooks at all locations to maintain a record of attendance numbers, as well as comments from the public. We will go through the guest books and evaluate the comments from them.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We had guest lists at all of the locations for the public to sign and note their comments regarding our event. We got many positive responses from the public with the comments on the guest lists.
