Aaron Kagan Putt was able to complete a series of large-scale paintings and video and sound works that focused on the immigrant experience in the Twin Cities. In order to evaluate the success of this project, Aaron Putt documented the process through sketches, photographs and video and sound recordings, as well as detailed notes. He was able to directly observe improvements in his ability to work on large-scale paintings as well as video and sound editing. The successful completion and exhibition of the five final paintings served as the ultimate indicator of successful achievement of the stated outcomes. 2: As a result of Arts Board grant funding, Aaron Kagan Putt promoted and mounted an exhibition of large-scale paintings, which generated increased visibility, recognition and success in the arts community. The success of stated project outcomes were measured by attendance at each event and the degree of community engagement. The effectiveness of the promotional materials and social media marketing was evaluated similarly.
