Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Receiving financial support will provide the time necessary for development of artistic technique, enable the ability to travel, and learn about the Minnesota landscape. Success in this regard will be the expansion of my own knowledge and experience of the Minnesota landscape, while manifesting itself in the form of more affecting, varied, and skillfully executed artwork. Receiving grant funding will allow the production of new varied bodies of work and make it accessible through public exhibition, online presentation and a physical publication. Viewer attendance and engagement, critical dialog or potential publication of reviews, and feedback from viewers will help evaluate the impact and resonance of the projects.

Measurable Outcome(s)

This project included the research, execution, and exhibition of new original artworks spanning drawing, painting, sculpture, video and sound. 2: This project involved the creation of artwork for exhibition at the Rochester Art Center in Rochester, Minnesota which included drawings, paintings, sculpture, video and sound.
