Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The exhibit will provide artistic exposure to the whole community focusing on an environmental issue. GRA goes GREEN! will raise awareness about the importance of being responsible consumers, protecting our oceans from pollution and preserving our natural resources. We will engage 850 people (artists, students, teachers, senior citizens, etc.) to participate in creating art for GRA goes GREEN! and the GRA Juried Art Show in 2017. We will take a time lapse video of the installation process for GRA goes GREEN! and we will photograph both of the visual arts exhibits after the installations are completed. We will track the number of (artists, students, teachers, senior citizens, etc.) that participate in creating art for GRA goes GREEN! and the GRA Juried Art Show in 2017, with a spreadsheet as well as the artist entry forms that we collect from our website. We will raise awareness about being responsible consumers, protecting our oceans from pollution and preserving our natural resources by including, posting and weaving factual information from scientific research into the GRA goes GREEN! art installation. This is meant to enhance the educational aspect of the exhibit.
