As this event is two-pronged, there are two separate sets of goals. We hope that the round-table discussion will bring together neighborhood and food leaders with art advocates to discuss pathways to healthy communities through promoting local food and simply being good neighbors. Meanwhile, the intent of the larger exhibit is to promote discussion in the community at large surrounding sustainable cities and neighborhoods. We believe that this exhibit will provide an opportunity to consider important issues for those who have not already done so. We also believe that the experimental nature of the art and its presentation will provide a new perspective for those who already have. We plan to measure the immediate audience impact of the exhibit by counting attendees at the exhibit's opening reception, as well as visitors to the gallery for the duration of the exhibit, which will be open for viewing until the end of the month. We will also document any press or television attention that the event receives. Meanwhile, we hope to secure attendance at the round-table by various leaders in local sustainability. After the discussion and subsequent reception, we will follow up with them to assess their qualified view of the event's impact.
In addition to providing a sign-in sheet to encourage further involvement by attendees, event organizers encouraged each attendee of the dinner to introduce themselves to the room. This created a dialogue between feminists and artists of many ages and persuasions, who had each come to the event. The event was also featured in Duluth News Tribune's 'Artists on Art', a listing of 2015's greatest art and cultural offerings.
