It was incredible to put on the exhibit as a function at Yale and as an accessible medium through Twitter. The exhibit itself was a successful event. We were able to share our culmilative work with the Yale community in a way that was innovative and engaging. I also love the idea of how having mobility as a theme throughout the course transcended in sharing our exhibits through #CALatino. Regarding my personal project, I was very pleased with the end outcome.
My method of feedback was a Survey Monkey questionnaire. Looking back, I would have used a different method for collecting feedback. Perhaps providing the survey in physical form during the exhibit would have yielded better response rates. In addition, I could have suggested the use of the user experience station to fill out my survey during the evening of the exhibit. The feedback that I did receive was useful and supportive of the different mediums I used in my presentation. I feel that I was successful in engaging the audience through the sources that I used to present my research. The combination of visuals and text provided an intersection between scholar text and representations of what Olvera Street looked like in the 1930’s. This connection was appropriate for creating a clearer picture of the street vending narrative I wanted the consumer to walk away with. The use of photographs also proved beneficial in creating this outcome. #LAStreetVendors, the wild card of my project, was captivating with connecting street vending activism to the present through the use of a medium that a vast amount of the population engages in.
