The art show is also expected to enhance the understanding of students taking Africa-related classes as well as students who are researching African art and culture. The audience will also be provided a chance to compare contemporary North American art with art from Africa, bringing out the nuances in culture and belief between both societies. Moreover, the briefing regarding South Africa, its art and culture following the art show is expected to enhance the understanding of the audience in regards to how African art has evolved over the ages. Active feedback will be sought from the audience using comment cards that will be provided to each visitor. Changes deemed necessary by the audience will be incorporated to the proposed art show and will be kept in note for future art shows. It is hoped that a successful art show will convince other universities to follow suit.
The proposed art show is expected to draw in a varied audience composed of students, teachers and members of staff at Indiana State University. Learning about other cultures, their values and norms is increasingly necessary, given the multi-racial outlook of modern society. The art show presents students with a chance to peer beyond their own cultural traditions so that they may breed tolerance for other cultures. Audiences will be handed out small brochures as guides to the art show. These brochures will include information regarding South Africa and regarding the art pieces on display.
Volunteers from the community will be required to watch over the show to ensure that the art pieces are not vandalized in any form. In addition, volunteers will be required in order to usher the incoming audiences and to manage the entire art gallery during exhibition time. The volunteers will be expected to open up the gallery and shut it down each day that the exhibition proceeds. Before the start of the art show, volunteers will be needed to set up the pieces of art in the art gallery
