Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, people of all ages, ethnicities and abilities will be able to participate in the arts due to the public display of the art as well as the subject matter. The Bemidji Sculpture Walk believes by viewing sculptures in public space, individuals who might not be exposed to art on a daily basis will be able to engage with the sculptures in a meaningful and personal way. An added benefit is individuals will have an opportunity to purchase unique sculptures via auction. There are tangible ways we at the Bemidji Sculpture Walk can and will quantify the impact of this project. We quantify the visits and views from our website where people viewing our art can learn about the art they see and the artists who create it. We capture anecdotal evidence like this example we received this summer: We loved our trip to Bemidji and a lot of it was because of your amazing Art! We wanted to say thanks for the great eye candy found all over the city."
