Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The Nemeth Art Center attendees will gain knowledge about painting and the artistic process and gain new awareness of contemporary art.We will evaluate the success of this project through several means, by hosting a talk back session, by asking participants to fill out a survey, and we will solicit feedback through social media.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Approximately 50 people attended Jaron Childs’ artist talk in which he discussed his own work and where it fits in the world of contemporary art. Audience responses indicated that a new appreciation for contemporary art was achieved through the exhibit itself and Childs’ talk. Specific comments collected from local and out-of-town visitors indicated the high artistic quality of his work had resulted in a positive impact on the attendees, who were surprised and delighted that a show of this caliber had come to Park Rapids.
