Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. To provide a group that represents folk art through their music for the first time at our Fair to create art appreciation. 2. Through Kips' Painting we hope to promote his artistic abilities for an audience to get excited to want to paint and also to promote our 2018 Anniversary with this project. We will publish a short survey on Facebook after the performance and art project: Did you enjoy the performance today? Has the artist inspired you to want to paint? Do you want to see more of these events at next year's fair?
