Art Project Legacy
ACHF Arts Access
The goal of this project is to instill the arts into the community and public life in our region. We hope to increase the number of people who are aware of public art projects in Montevideo, and to grow their appreciation for these types of projects. We hope to create a social media buzz, which will attract attention to public art projects and ideas in Montevideo. We will distribute a paper survey and conduct interviews at the project site to get feedback on the project. We will ask questions such as “What do you think about the mural and railroad car?” and “What other public art projects would you like to see?” We will post on Facebook and track number of views and shares. We will use a Survey Monkey survey and link this to our Facebook page. We will document the project with video, photographs and social media posts as it is being created. We will contact art and history teachers at the schools and invite their participation in the project and get their feedback. We will show the completed video in the schools and use it as a springboard for a discussion about the importance of the railroad in the creation of Montevideo. It is expected that these activities this will engage the youth in our community and also prevent future vandalism.
Our main evaluation was a paper survey at the event. We also posted the online version of the survey on our Facebook page. Surveys showed a VERY positive response: Instilled the arts into the community and public life in our region. Increased the number of people who are aware of public art projects in Montevideo to grow their appreciation for these types of projects. Created a social media buzz with our video.
