Professional and non-professional artists, student artists, and the viewing audience will be impacted by this project. Professional artists will gain increased viewership, non-professional artists will gain confidence from having their skills and artistic talent acknowledged and valued by the public, student artists’ understanding of the impact the Bill of Rights has on their daily lives will be increased, first time art show goers will have an increased appreciation for a variety of art mediums, and along with seasoned art show goers will increase their knowledge and understanding of the Bill of Rights and appreciation for the arts as a medium for expression.Artists, student artists, and audience members will complete a survey seeking information about what they learned about art and the Bill of Rights by participating in or attending this show. Award winners will be interviewed following the show to see whether and how participation in the show has positively influenced how they view their own art and positively affected their future plans regarding creating art.
The participating artists expressed pride and satisfaction at being part of the show. This year’s featured artist, Michael Lemon, spoke glowingly about the impact that being featured in the exhibit promotional materials and at the show had on him. Last year’s featured artist, Wesley May, talked about how his art has advanced in the lapsed year and how he is increasingly viewing himself as a professional artist. Lindsay Owens, who was selected as best emerging artist under 18, was thrilled to have her submission to the show taken seriously. Viewers reported in their surveys that they learned about indigenous art and about the Bill of Rights, both of which were desired outcomes for the show.
