Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Real or perceived barriers to arts participation/access are addressed by adding public artwork to city center, trails, and parks. Evaluation will occur through audience, participant, and artist questionnaires, personal observation of activities, follow up meetings, attendance numbers, and interviews.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Our Public Art project was successful: According to the County Highway Department over 200,000 motorists drive through town every year and will see the public art displays; over 300 people were involved in the school projects; 30+ artists were involved in the community art effort with more than 250 attending in arts and crafts and vendor events. We now have at least 18 public animal/artwork pieces on display throughout our town and trail systems.
