The creation of ten new large scale abstract paintings for my first solo exhibition in a museum. The successful completion of the paintings and their installation for exhibition in February 2016 at the Hillstrom Museum of Art. 2: Strong attendance and publicity for the exhibition and artist talk at the Hillstrom Museum of Art. The Hillstrom Museum of Art regularly measures attendance as a part of their practice. I will request attendance numbers during my exhibition for the grant record.
Betsy Byers successfully created and exhibited twenty-four new paintings in her first solo museum exhibition at the Hillstrom Museum of Art in Saint Peter, Minnesota. This outcome was evaluated through the actualization of the exhibition. The paintings for Submerge were completed and installed at the museum beginning February 1, 2016. The opening for the exhibition occurred on February 15th, 2016. 2: 575 visitors in the state of Minnesota attended Submerge and the three gallery artist talks given by Byers throughout the exhibition. The outcomes numbers projected were confirmed by tallying visitors to the exhibition. The Hillstrom Museum of Art tallies attendance during the regular museum hours. During the opening and artist talks, visitors in attendance were also tallied.
