Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

I will create new art for a solo exhibition at the New York Mills, Minnesota. I will evaluate the outcome based the completion of the exhibition and its use of new materials. This kind of evaluative system will keep the evaluative process objective rather than trying to subjectively evaluate the quality of the art.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Completed a solo installation for the community of New York Mills and surrounding region at New York Mills Cultural Art Center, New York Mills, Minnesota.
