ACHF Arts Access
To bring awareness to the growing problem of emerald ash borer infestation in Minnesota with hopes to prevent / reduce the spread. Hand-printed postcards will be distributed to adjacent community as well as at sculpture sites. Cards will provide links to an online questionnaire and a blog-format website. Responses will summarize public reaction to the project. 2: This project will form a foundation for future successes in public oriented projects. This outcome will be evaluated through strong photo/written documentation of the project on professional artist website (www.joshkwinkler.com).
600+ cards were printed and dispersed. Attendance to public receptions exceeded 40. People continue visiting sites to take cards on their own. To distribute an edition of 60, four-color postcards at two public receptions. To distribute and edition of 550 two-color postcards through mail drops and in the sculpture itself. To create a blog format site documenting the project through documentation photos, historical background, and reflection. To take a head count at each public reception to determine the number of guests. 2: Both public sculptures, 600+ printed postcards, and two public receptions were completed to high standards before the winter of 2016-2017. An archive of PowerPoint proposals, emails, and press publications are helpful for planning future endeavors. My own research and written reflections on this project have proved helpful in seeking future project opportunities.
