The target audience includes adult life-long learners and mature teenaged visitors in both the Park Rapids and White Earth Reservation communities. The measurable outcomes for this program are to provide a quality arts experience that positively impacts our target audience, expand and enrich the arts dialogue among patrons by exposing visitors to new ideas and perspectives, raise awareness of the Nemeth Art Center resulting in visitors choosing to attend more Nemeth events, and raise regional awareness of Park Rapids as an arts center.Participants will complete a survey and have the opportunity to participate in talk back sessions with the visiting artists. The survey and talk back sessions will seek to determine the ways in which the arts dialogue has been enriched and expanded for participants and audiences who have come in contact with the visiting artists, their art, and their ideas.
The target audiences surveyed through talk back sessions, email, and online surveys indicated at a 95% rate that they would attend lectures of this kind again and 90% indicated that they had an improved view of the Park Rapids arts culture. Attendees at Esther Partegas and Brad Kahlhammer’s lectures both in Park Rapids and on the White Earth reservation showed an improved knowledge and appreciation for Spanish art, installation art, and Native American art.
