Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

By branching into the social landscape genre, I will stretch my work as a visual artist. The success of my growth will be determined by acceptance into, and greater recognition and visibility in the fine art world through the exhibition and promotion of the work.

Measurable Outcome(s)

By branching into the social landscape genre of photography, I have enjoyed being stretched as a visual artist. My success was determined by being granted a solo show via a juried review at a prominent University gallery in the Twin Cities.
