Increase public awareness of Warren MacKenzie's contribution to international folk art and increase student and public interest in pottery. Anoka-Ramsey Community College will conduct online and in-person surveys at all screenings/exhibitions to measure audience engagement and impact. 2: Publicly showcase a documentary film on potter Warren MacKenzie to 905 Minnesotans at six sites throughout the state. Attendance will be recorded at each site and the majority of attendees will complete online and in-person surveys.
The goal was clearly met according to the survey results and emails received following this tour. When asked, 'To what extent was the information presented new to you?' over 75% of respondents said that the material was somewhat to totally new to them, with over one third saying it was all new to them. Three-quarters said they would like to see more like this and would recommend the presentation to friends. Some example comments are: So fun to hear a local artist talk so passionately about his art., We need more of this type of film. 2: While our actual audience of 811 did not quite meet the goal as stated, the audiences were sizable and enthusiastic at all six sites. Co-organizers gave positive feedback such as, Here at Winona State University, we had an audience of over 50 students, faculty, and community members I thought that was an excellent turnout, given we were showing a film rather than hosting a live artist.; Event went off without a hitch and was well attended. and I brought my beginning wheel class to see the new Warren Mackenzie film last month. The timing could not have been better. Most of my students are non-art majors and this is their first exposure to the clay world. I appreciate the opportunity to be able to show future classes this film.
