Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The artistic goals are to give the artist exposure and educate the public to the artists' work.The outcome will be evaluated on attendance, the dialog between the artists and audience, and the reception that the public gives to the events. These goals are measured by attendance. Written and verbal comments will also be solicited.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Attendance was not as great as we hoped. Weather could have been a contributing factor for the Handmade Holidays. There was a winter weather advisory on Saturday which kept a lot of people away. While our main goal was not sales, we felt they should have been better.
