Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

More Minnesotans understand their heritage as it relates to others by participating in relevant and accessible arts, craft and music experiences. Track attendance and feedback at four exhibitions and accompanying programs, to understand how art, climate and migration shape ASI visitors' perceptions of heritage.

Measurable Outcome(s)

123,377 Minnesotans participated in arts experiences that deepened their understanding of their heritage and how it relates to others. ASI tracked attendance numbers (admissions) for four exhibitions and accompanying programming. Via feedback forms and surveys, ASI tracked how visitors were changed and their perception of heritage shifted through their participation in these programs.
