Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

A large outdoor mural prominently displayed in the Frogtown neighborhood, located just off University Avenue, on the Charles Ave Bikeway. I will photo-document the daily progress towards completion. 2: To engage community and to gain more recognition as a viable mural artist. By counting the number of community members engaged in the project from start to finish, and by the number of community inquiries about my mural portfolio (both in person and via social media).
