ACHF Arts Access
The photographs will be printed and shown in both Minneapolis and the town itself, encouraging dialogue regarding community, hardship, and purpose. The attendance at both exhibits will be indicative of the interest drawn to the project. Feedback and questions during the artist talk will suggest how the viewers react to the objectives, documentation, and effectiveness of the photographs. 2: A book of the photographs will also be printed and bound, to be distributed as a means of reaching a broader audience across Minnesota. The acceptance of the book in specific locations, such as galleries and libraries, is one way to measure the effectiveness of the book medium. It also ensures the images are circulating after the exhibition has closed.
111 visitors counted for CCA Exhibit, Business hours for Color Space Exhibit, 1,000+ Website views post CNN Article (Google Analytics), and twelve emails from national viewers. Attendee count was used to evaluate the exhibit's numeric success. Website traffic was also monitored to evaluate interest in the project. Upon professional critique, viewer response, and the artist's personal reflection, the level of quality of the work has been observed and well-received. 2: Thirty books produced, ten distributed to community members, ten remain available at Color Space, and ten will be used for future distribution. As the artist personally distributed these books, the numbers and recipients were collected.
