Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The variety and number of arts opportunities in Northwest Minnesota will increase through this opportunity for the general public to interact with the artists and attend workshops on their special interests. Evaluation will occur through an audience questionnaire, personal observation of activities, follow up meeting with project planners, attendance numbers, and interviews.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The feed-back is completely positive -- actually, enthusiastically positive. The mural represents more to the observers than expected. It represents something new in an aging community that has had little new in the last many years. It represents increased activity on a street where the traffic has seen a steady decline. And, in turn, many before they know it or ever expected to be, are taking an interest in art!
