Arts/Cultural Heritage Grant
ACHF Arts Access
To increase public awareness of local artists, bring more visitors to participating artists’ studios/sites and provide visitors the opportunity to meet these artists and purchase their works. Surveys are provided to visitors and artists, including specific and open-ended questions. The coordinator records anecdotal responses and photographs artists and visitors. Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council members also share their thoughts and the Art Leap Committee has a wrap up meeting.
Artists asked for more promotion before the next event on their surveys, but were still pleased overall with the number of visitors and the number of sales during the event. Visitors responded very positively about the quality of local arts and the value of seeing local artists in action. Local businesses reported increased visitors and sales, especially the restaurants.
