Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

I will interact directly with people who want to design barriers for their spaces. I will also interact with spectators at the sites. I will advertise the opportunity in newspapers and online venues, and actively seek out situations that I believe fit the criteria. I will track the number of visitors to the Hostile Neighbor website.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The opportunity was advertised online, in newspapers and gallery newsletters. I did interact with people at the sites, at one gallery opening in Red Wing, and online, I tracked the number of visitors to the Hostile Neighbor site.
