Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The variety and number of arts opportunities in Northwest Minnesota will increase through bringing in a professional comedy/music act which is rare in our area. Evaluation will occur through an artist questionnaire, personal observation of activities, follow up meeting with project planners, and attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The three sisters who grew up on a farm in Southern Minnesota drew the largest crowd of any of our Norwegian Heritage Week activities this year. Comedy acts are difficult to find and these three combined their musical talents with their skill for turning well-known tunes into Scandinavian humor.
