Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Through its artist residency program, Franconia will support up to 40 artists in the creation and exhibition of new three-dimensional artwork. Outcome evaluation will be measured by surveying emerging and mid-career artists served, to assess residency program impact in supporting the creation and exhibition of new three-dimensional artwork. 2: Franconia will serve 120,000+ visitors with daily, free access and 13,000+ learners with unique programming of the 43-acre sculpture exhibition. Outcome evaluation is measured through survey of visitors' experience of touring the exhibition and participating in educational arts programming.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Through Franconia's artist residency program, 42 artists-in-residence created and exhibited new artwork. Every artist-in-residence completed an exit survey. Quantitative and Qualitative data collected through the survey demonstrates the positive impact Franconia's residency program has upon the abilities and attitudes of participating artists. 2: Franconia provided free, daily access to the exhibition to more than 150,000 visitors and provided 13,528 arts learners with educational programming. Franconia provides accessibility for all, including those with mobility impairments, to the 43-acre exhibition of 120+ sculptures. Programming impact is measured by tracking program metrics and conducing audience and participant surveys.
