Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The goal of the project is to design and print a book of approximately 100 pages and distribute them to regional libraries, museums, arts centers, and stores. The goal will be reached when the book is printed and distributed, seen and well-received by members of the public.

Measurable Outcome(s)

I evaluate the project by meeting and talking about the project with library and museum professionals and members of the public who attend my artist talks and book signing events. I also evaluate by the number of book sales and books put into circulation in regional libraries.
