MacRostie Art Center will upgrade its sound system to provide more effective sound delivery for artist receptions and community events. Improved sound will make MacRostie Art Center events more accessible to all members of the public. The upgraded sound system will debut at a National Poetry Month community event in April: a poetry reading and open mic event hosted by the local theater group the Uncommon Loons. This event will serve an estimated audience of 50 - 80 people, and our goal is that all attendees will have a positive listening experience. At the event taking place in April, artist and audience feedback will be solicited about the quality of the sound experience.
The success of the sound system upgrade was evaluated by speaking with attendees at the Porters and Poetry event on April 24, 2015. Eighty people attended this event, and no negative comments related the sound quality were received. The speaking poets and the audience members surveyed responded favorably to the ease of use of the system and the quality of the sound throughout the gallery.
