Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, people gathered for the Grygla Centennial celebration will gain new or expanded understanding of multiple art forms, including steamroller print-making, chainsaw carving, caricatures, Scandinavian dancing, and folk music. Evaluation will occur through counting participants and audience members, a follow-up meeting with project planners, and a survey sent to participants asking them to rate the quality of artists and submit their impressions and experiences.

Measurable Outcome(s)

150 people responded to the survey. Good/excellent rating: steamroller printmaking (90%), chainsaw carving (96%), caricature (90%), Scandinavian dancers (87%), and folk music (97%). We counted the participants/audience members, there was a follow-up meeting with project planners. Many people expressed their appreciation by word of mouth for the variety of activities offered, including all of the art activities, demonstrations, and performances.
