Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. We will conduct an online survey for tour-goers who vote online for their favorite sculpture. This survey will gather demographic information of the tour-goer and solicit their overall experience of the tour. A second survey will be given to the participating artists to gather feedback on their experience with the program.
