Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Create nine new artworks (five intaglio prints, two collages and two screen prints), have them professionally photographed and frame the work using repurposed wood. The new body of work will be successfully completed and placed in frames built by me using repurposed wood. I will hire a professional photographer to document the work within the grant period. 2: I will seek opportunities to exhibit the new work by submitting materials to five Minnesota venues I have not exhibited at previously. I will deliver an artist talk during the exhibition. The body of work created during the grant period will be scheduled for exhibition at a publicly accessible venue in Minnesota. An artist talk will be scheduled during the exhibition period.

Measurable Outcome(s)

During the grant period, I created seven new intaglio prints, two new screenprints and five new collages. Ten of these artworks were photographed upon completion. The artwork generated during the grant period was measured against the goals I set forth in the initial proposal. Upon review of the artwork and its final presentation, I was able to pinpoint knowledge gains and technical improvements that resulted from the research and practice related to this grant. 2: I sought to exhibit at more than five Minnesota venues, had a solo exhibition at Minnesota State University-Moorhead and delivered two artist lectures during the grant period. I compared the proposed outcomes with what took place during the grant period. Unfortunately I do not know how many people came through my exhibition at Minnesota State University-Moorhead while it was on view.
