Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

We expect The Art of Fine Furniture exhibit and workshops to provide access to participation in the arts for more Minnesotans through the artists in the exhibit and those at all levels of ability that participate in the workshops. We will have a "thoughts" notebook at the exhibit for attendees and artists to leave notes about their experience. We will also talk with participants at the workshops, record all attendance numbers, and a visitor sign-in book records city, state.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, through visitor counts and talking with attendees we met our goal of providing access to the arts for more Minnesotans. Many younger people participated in the workshops that were a success with all skill levels working together.
