Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

It is my hope that the exhibit will be informative as well as educational, first by giving happiness to farmers depicted in the paintings, and second by providing a learning experience to students of art.The outcome will be reflected in the number of people coming to the exhibit, and the opinion of the media critics.

Measurable Outcome(s)

People's reactions towards art is very subject. However, several people approached me with very positive comments regarding the exhibit. They loved the colors and the details of the pieces. The same opinions were heard by the staff.
