Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Display in Owatonna Hospital is a great opportunity for people who otherwise wouldn't be able to enjoy the pieces. Many times people wander the halls of a hospital while waiting for one reason or another. The art I hang will bring back memories for older visitors and have a calming effect on troubled ones.I will have a guest book for people to encourage comments and stories about my work as well as memories. I will interview the receptionist at the hospital to see what comments people have made and to see what reactions people have to the art.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The only thing measurable were the smiles and they were many.
