Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

I will organize, digitize and inventory my entire artistic production by early 2017. I will then share knowledge gained with communities statewide. The completion of the organized digital archive and its concomitant inventory and the completion of the lecture series are the benchmarks by which the success of this project will be measured. 2: The artist will conduct between 3-5 lectures, sharing her experience of creating a digital archive and its relevance artists’ professional practices. Success will be evaluated by the artist’s ability to gain and disseminate knowledge about archiving and its (digital archiving’s) career impact for herself and Minnesota artists.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The digital archive was successfully created and mapped. The lecture series was undertaken and completed.
