Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Support emerging and established visual artists through artist residencies, internships, and a year-round exhibition of more than eighty sculptures. 2. Encourage audience participation, appreciation, and education of three-dimensional art in a charged yet informal setting. Evaluate the number of artists supported through residencies, internships, and exhibitions, and the number of audience members.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Franconia Sculpture Park is supporting forty emerging and established visual artists through artist residency fellowships and internships and providing the public a year-round exhibition of ninety-five sculptures. Forty national and international artists include six Franconia Sculpture Park/Jerome Emerging Artist fellowships, three Open Studio fellowships, thirteen Intern Artist fellowships, one Minnesota State Arts Board Cultural Community Partnership grantee, twelve Hot Metal Artist fellows, four Hot Metal Intern Artists, and one Franconia Sculpture Park/Digital Stone Project fellow. Franconia will serve over 60,000 visitors; provide artist-led guided tours to over 1,500 individuals from over sixty groups; give weekly public tours; and present forty community events including festivals, workshops, symposia, performing arts series, and classes. We will present exhibitions and events at Franconia in the City at Casket gallery in Minneapolis, and partner with three community organizations to provide art education programs to at least 150 at-risk youth. Our evaluation includes audience and artist data and stakeholder surveys.
