Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Four professional Minnesota film artists and one master potter will tour to four greater Minnesota communities, leading workshops, exhibiting their art work and screening their most recent documentary. This outcome will be evaluated by tracking the number of artists who tour, the number of towns in which they present screenings, exhibitions and workshops. 2: 600 residents of four greater Minnesota communities will attend the documentary screening, a film making workshop or an exhibition. The number attendees at each presentation will be tracked. To measure the quality of the experience, Minnesotans in attendance will be asked to complete a short evaluation form.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Six professional Minnesota film artists toured three Minnesota communities, gave workshops, exhibited work and screened their documentary. The master potter couldn’t tour, but his work toured. 2: 1,276 attended the opening receptions, exhibitions and film screenings at Grand Marais Art Colony, MacRostie Art Center and Ely. Nineteen attended a film workshop presented at the three locations.
