Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Minnesota professional artists and arts organizations have more opportunities to tour their work throughout the state. Minnesota professional artists and arts organizations tour to communities and regions they haven’t previously visited. More community and nonprofit organizations become involved in presenting touring artists and arts organizations.

Measurable Outcome(s)

In the 2012-13 season, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet toured to four different regions of Minnesota. The number of presenters in Minnesota with the resources to present the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet in concert is relatively small and the touring in this project provided the players of the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet with more opportunity to perform at a professional level with appropriate compensation. By comparing the total number of performances by the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet players in the 2012-13 season with seasons not supported with Arts Tour Minnesota funding, it is easy to see that this project helped to provide the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet with more opportunities to tour in Minnesota. 2: This project allowed the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet to tour in four different regions of Minnesota. Most of the communities had never before been visited by the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet and with the help of written surveys and our informal question/answer sessions we know that most of the concert attendees had never seen the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet in concert.
