Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are engaged in arts education and learning opportunities increases. The quality and types of arts education and learning opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Amy Muehlenhardt will be responsible for creating, distributing and tabulating the results of the survey. She will develop a separate survey for participating students and art teachers. There will also be an exit survey available for all visitors on the night of the open reception. A guest book will also be left for visitors to leave comments in throughout the duration of the exhibition.
