Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Minnesotans believe the arts are vital to who we are. 2. The arts are interwoven into every facet of community life. Measure progress toward annual benchmarks.

Measurable Outcome(s)

1. The Sheldon and the Red Wing Area Seniors collaborated on a production of Strictly GI!, a revue based on the soldier shows of World War II and that era's tradition of popular song. The Sheldon engaged Red Wing's Hispanic Outreach, St. Paul's Theatre del Pueblo, and Son del Sur to present music and theatre to Red Wing's mainstream and Latino communities. The Sheldon Theatre, James Sewell Ballet, the Red Wing YMCA and Red Wing's Shoreline Dance collaborated on dance classes, camps, and joint concerts to engage students and local audiences. The Sheldon scheduled theater and movement classes in collaboration with Red Wing Community Education, offering low-cost to free dance and theater classes and intensive camp experiences.
