Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality, type and number of arts opportunities in the state and the organizations or venues that offer them increases through providing programming that will give our patrons the opportunity to try new creative outlets with artists. Evaluation will occur through participant, audience, and artist questionnaires; interviews; notes related to personal observation; and audience, artist, and youth attendance count.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We reached our target audience and saw the results that we had intended. We did collect participation numbers, informal interviews with artists, presenters, and audience members, as well as collecting audience questionnaires. Many artists and participants were pleased both with our facilities and the opportunities provided to connect with others in the community that shared their passion for the arts. Our grant helped us to grow and nurture our arts organizations through public exhibits.
