Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

I see the community achieving a renewed appreciation of glass in its many forms and uses as a medium for art expression; and an increased understanding of the importance of all pollinators to our quality of life.Attendance numbers as well as comments both verbal and written in the guest book at the reception and for the duration of the show will help me assess my goals.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The goal was to finish new pieces of art work and exhibit them. By attendance, comments, and assessment from library staff, there was a wonderful response to new work, and to continue photographing bugs.
