Participating artists will develop their skills leading to their own professional development. The Park Rapids area public at large will exhibit an increase in awareness of the local arts community resulting in increased attendance at arts events.Participating artists will complete a brief final report indicating the ways in which this opportunity affected them professionally as well as provide feedback to Nemeth about how to improve the program for the future. The Park Rapids Community will be invited to fill out a survey monkey survey, which will show any changes in their level of awareness of the arts in the community and provide feedback to Nemeth Art Center for future programmatic planning. The Art Center greeter (usually the director) collects feedback regularly through engaging with visitors.
Through the final reports of the artists and their comments we know that several artists were able to make their first sales through this program - one was even commissioned to do a piece! For at least two of the artists this was the first time they had exhibited their work. This was a huge step in their professional development as artists. The final reports of the artists reflected the success of the program. The receptions were far better attended than last year and there was much more talk in the community about the program. Comments on the visitor survey were uniformly positive such as “I enjoyed meeting the artists,” and “I love seeing local art. Please continue to show Park Rapids artists.”
