Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this program, community members will be able to connect with and learn from a variety of professional artists and arts programming at no cost to them throughout the year. Evaluation will occur through collection of attendance numbers, personal observation of events, interviews with participants and artists, as well as collecting information through formal questionnaires.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Seventy artists were involved in the twenty-two activities we were able to offer as a result of this grant, with a total of 14,352 people being in contact with artists and their work throughout the grant period. The attendance cost for all programs was zero. We did collect attendance numbers, personal observations, informal interviews with both audience and artists, as well as artist questionnaires.
