Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Goals: - Two interactive art projects will be created and showcased in the museum. - Children will explore the many possibilities of colors and geometric shapes in textiles and carve, construct and build wood creations to make individual works of celebration and discovery. - Fine arts appreciation, engagement, and learning. - Underserved communities are reached through art and cultural learning. Outcomes: - Over 40,000 people will view and interact with the artists and installation over the year. - A creative community of lifelong learners will be built. - The installation will become an ongoing topic of family and community dialogue, cultivating global perspectives. Using best practices established by the Association of Children's Museums, outcomes will be measured through: - Attendance tracking of museum visitors and event participation. - Number of field trip and group tour bookings. - Participation in art creation. - Feedback surveys from program participants, parents, teachers, and the community. - Staff and board member observation and reporting.
