Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The work produced will be shown in venues and galleries throughout Minnesota. By getting feedback from professional artists in my field, with additional feedback from the public who will view my work.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The film Painting the Space Between, featuring myself and three other artists currently making work in Minnesota, will benefit the community by exposing contemporary Minnesota painters in venues other than galleries, drawing visibility to the work and raise awareness of contemporary painting in spaces it would not otherwise reach. The premier of the film will be shown in Minneapolis at The Fitzgerald Theater.
