Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. All evaluation methods are part of the duties of the executive director and staff. A survey form will be done for each exhibition and the results will be tallied for use in developing future art opportunities. The Waseca Arts Council utilizes the Prairie Lakes Arts Council Survey Form questions.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We created, distributed, and tabulated a survey. Information collected will be used to enhance our programing to better meet the needs of the targeted population.
