Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Minnesota artists are able to expand or further develop their artistic abilities through varied learning opportunities. More Minnesotans are able to engage in or with the work of Minnesota artists.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I attended a session on writing historical poetry at a conference, and a workshop on authentic historical settings. I spent significant time in the state historical society library examining relevant collections as well as reading other print and web resources to enhance my knowledge and understanding of Midwestern women's experiences in the late 1800's/early 1900's.
