Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Create art experiences that spark discovery, critical thinking, and transformation. Effective execution of programs, audience surveys, attendance, observation, anecdotal evidence, independent testimony (social media), and staff synthesis of results will serve as evaluation tools.

Measurable Outcome(s)

WAM produced twelve exhibitions and 46 public programs, including free conversations, WAM Chatters, free monthly study nights, student design showcase, and a resident music group. WAM counted onsite admissions and tracked online connections through Facebook, Twitter, and WAM's website using Google analytics and other data capture methods. Audience surveys were collected and tabulated after public programs.
