Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who are able to participate in the arts increases. Real or perceived barriers to arts participation and arts access are identified and addressed. Staff will create a survey for board and/or constituents that asks how this equipment or facilities upgrade will be helpful to the public with positive responses of 75% or greater, and the handicap and aging population will increase over the next year.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Yes, we achieved our planned outcomes. We used a survey. The artists and students liked the tables that were purchased and used for the classes.
