Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Work with at least 9 artists to capture black and white images and /or the stories of residents, unique places, and architectural remnants in Morrison County. To host at least 1 field trip for high school students (art and/or history classes) during the exhibit, provide the students with an interpretive docent. 20 new Great River Arts Association memberships will result from this exhibit. Collaborate with at least 2 other community organizations on this exhibit. We will track the number of artists engaged to capture the components that compose this exhibit. We will track the number of fieldtrips that come to Great River Arts Association as a result of this exhibit. We will track and tally the number of visitors that visit the exhibit on a daily basis. We will ask new members why they chose to join Great River Arts, listing this exhibit as an option. We will track the number of partners and collaborators on this project, and the process used for a successful collaboration.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Successfully provided access to locally inspired photography and a venue for local photographers to showcase their work. Created community engagement that was hard to measure quantify.
