Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The availability of Heartland in exhibitions, in libraries and special programs at schools and arts organizations will enable it to be seen by Minnesotans of all ages. Heartland consists of work by outstanding poets and printmakers whose work is not always available in such public venues. Outcomes will be measured by attendance at exhibitions, sales of the portfolio, and feedback to Anderson Center staff and the poets and printmakers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We estimated that 33 adult artists would be directly involved in Heartland. That was the case. We estimated that 900 adults would view the exhibition. After exhibitions at other venues in 2016, that number will likely exceed 2,500.
