Art Project Grant
ACHF Arts Access
The program aims to stimulate thought and provoke exchanges amongst residents on the subject of art. We hope to increase participation in events at the Arts Center by reaching members of the community on Public Arts Day who didn't believe they had any artistic talents, or didn't think they even enjoyed creating art. We hope to encourage parents to create art together with their children, which we will see the results of if our family day class attendance increases. We also aim to broaden the public's acceptance of public art installations thus encouraging them to be more accepting of projects planned by the Public Art Commission.We will measure the success of Public Arts Day by the following methods: 1. When the Public Arts Commission announces their planned sculpture park we will measure negative vs. positive comments from the public. 2. Number of photos submitted by attendees for the website quilt." 3. Measure if Center class attendance rises. 4. Track the number of hits on the Hutchinson Center for the Arts website the following week. 5. Track the number of comments and views on the Hutchinson Center for the Arts' Facebook page. 6. We will ask attendees at the event to complete a survey regarding their views of public art, the arts center and Public Art Commission."
The variety of art mediums present was wonderful. The people who attended were very diverse cross-section of the residents of Hutchinson. The frequent comments heard during the day, showed a great exposure and appreciation for the unique hands-on arts act
