The artist successfully completed a public art project that was seen by hundreds of Minnesotans, and took his career to the next level. In addition to attendance at public exhibitions (which exceeded the initial estimate), the project received favorable coverage in local newspapers, including the Star Tribune and the Saint Paul Pioneer Press, both of which ran photographs of the art. Group exhibitions also received local media coverage, including favorable reviews of the Gods and Monsters show at Grey Gallery. 2: This project helped to take my career to the next level. Having met with a career counselor, sales of my artwork increased by 22 percent. I also received paid commissions for graphic design work as a direct result of the new marketing strategies that I adopted in 2016.
