Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Increased use of available access services and knowledge about the Americans with Disabilities Act among our patrons and the larger community. Gallery patrons can complete an onsite survey about their knowledge of the Americans with Disabilities Act and access services. They will also be video recorded about their experience and posted to Facebook. Workshop attendees will complete a pre and post survey.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The target populations include members and the greater Northfield community. As the project evolved, artists with disabilities became an additional target population. We provided more access accommodations, such as a Gallery audio guide, and distributed surveys.
