Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of this project, Northwest Minnesota residents of all ages will be introduced to three new styles of arts and entertainment, promoting culture, creativity and rural Minnesota history! Evaluation will occur through a follow-up meeting with project planners, counting actual audience members, and asking participating audience members to evaluate programing through both voting and social media methods.

Measurable Outcome(s)

All three free stage events were very well received during the days of the fair. The painting class far exceeded our expectations. It brought young and old together sharing a passion for art by participating by painting a "fair" themed piece of art to hang in their home, the majority of the artists have never painted on canvas prior to this event. Dough Ohman, pioneer photographer and storyteller was more popular with the adult age group vs the youth age group.
