Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Encourage the public to participate in the art-making process at the July 3rd Arts in the Park where we will create a piece of artwork that depicts our community in a colorful and interesting way. An accompanying sign will describe the project, include the signatures of the visitors that participated in the project, and information about the arts in our area. Show this work to a large number of visitors and community members at a venue with high traffic, and visitors that are interested in the features of our community. The Crossing Arts Alliance will have a paid artist design the artwork and finish it so that the piece is exhibit-ready. We will track the number of community painters at the event through tally sheets, and collect signatures of those participants. The project and its exhibit at the Welcome Center will be documented in The Crossing Arts Alliance's quarterly newsletter and on social media. The artist will supply a sketch to The Crossing Arts Alliance's Director and Board prior to it being put on the canvases to ensure the image meets our vision and requirement for the project. Post-painting, the artist will re-paint the images outlines and apply a varnish. The Crossing Arts Alliance Director will inspect the artwork prior to exhibit for completeness.
