Arts Access Grant
ACHF Arts Access ACHF Arts Education ACHF Cultural Heritage
As a result of this program, selected artists will meet people who are interested in their art form(s) and may purchase their art or commission an artwork. As a result of this program, visitors will learn about new art forms and about aspects of artistic processes. Surveys are provided to participating artists, asking for numbers of visitors and in what ways Art Leap is helpful for them, i.e. visitor comments, sales, etc. Surveys at Art Leap sites will ask visitors if they learned about new art forms and if the event improved their understanding of the artistic process, such as the time artists invest in their work, the tools and materials they use and what inspires them.
Artist and public comments suggested expanding hours out of some frustration that with more sites, people couldn’t visit them all. Of 35 audience surveys returned, all indicated Art Leap helped them better understand the artistic process. 29 reported they purchased or commissioned one or more artworks during Art Leap. Artists reported they appreciate exposure to a new audience, local art enthusiasts and others who might not otherwise see artists at work. 75 have signed up to get email reminders.
