Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program the Park Rapids area Community will be presented with a rare opportunity to experience the Nemeth Art Center's entire permanent collection which has been amassed over the past 40 years. The number of visitors to the Nemeth Art Center during the permanent collection exhibit will be tracked. Surveys will be available for attendees to document their experience at the exhibit.

Measurable Outcome(s)

By tracking the number of visitors to the NAC's 40th Anniversary Exhibit, we learned that the number of adult attendees exceeded our expectations, while the number of youths attending the exhibit were less than we had hoped for. At request of the curator for the MYSYSYPYN Exhibit; Matthew Schum, it was decided to use an online survey to document attendees experiences at the exhibit. The online survey that was used for the exhibit can be found at the link below.
