Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Make a new body of work for a solo show and document the work for an artist book. I will evaluate the success of the proposed outcomes by how compelling the new work is, the feedback and amount of interest received for the artist book, and the attendance of the show. 2: Have an artist talk at the gallery regarding the work in the show, where the work is heading, and the artist book's role in it all. I will evaluate the success of the proposed outcome by the turnout at the artist talk, how dynamic the dialogue with the public is, and how clearly I can articulate my thoughts about my work.
