Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To increase participation of artist from the local and neighboring communities to showcase their talents, as well as increasing the venues by which arts are display so it will increase community involvement and enrichment. We plan to have video recordings and photographs of the event as well as take meticulous notes of the attendance and participation. We'd also conduct informal interviews to measure the positive impact.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We met our set goals. We provided a new venue for southeastern Minnesota artists to show their skills thus increased their participation which increased crowd sizes. The entire event was photographed and shared on social media.
