Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The community will help design and point a professional mural in a participatory arts experience for resident, from all walks of life. Welcoming people to a well-used public space, the mural will be one public art venue visibly linked to many others via the Lanesboro Arts Campus.We will count the number of people who: complete surveys, attend pointing classes, and help to point and see the mural per month (via the library's door counter). We will also log volunteer hours and record people's comments as they paint and as they celebrate the mural dedication.

Measurable Outcome(s)

33 community members of the community helped with the design and 75 community members helped with the actual painting of the mural during the four dates in October.
