Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality, types and number of arts opportunities in our region, and the organizations or venues that offer them increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. Project completion on time and on budget will be an indicator of success. They will conduct interviews with gallery committee members to determine how the improvements changed their ability to utilize space for exhibitions and receptions. They will also interview staff and volunteers to determine how the increased private storage/work space contributed to a more professional and efficient work environment.
