Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who teach or learn art forms will increase through bringing a relatively new artform sculpture into a community of talented people to encourage more sculpture creation.Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire, personal observation of activities, interviews, and a future sculpture show.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The festival's attendance doubled this year. I believe it was partly the weather, but we did advertise the visiting artist's sculpture party heavily. The sculpture itself turned out more outstanding than we could have predicted.
