Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

As a result of the Gary Pines Chainsaw Art installation, people of all ages will experience art in a natural setting, which will also educated them about nature and serve as a reminder of the Scandinavian heritage of the area, together or as individuals. Evaluation will occur through those experiencing the art project signing in at the Gary Pines, leaving their impressions of the art on the sign in space created for this. We will also track Facebook check in's and interview some of the participants to hear about their experience with the art in the Gary Pines. The grant opening of the project is scheduled for June 16, 2018. This will be a good opportunity to get feedback from a large number of participants.
