Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Participants will engage in critical analysis, form judgments and develop an appreciation of the arts and humanities. In addition, the often dull appearance of public buildings will be enhanced by the multi-panel art pieces.Surveys of the public as participants, exit interviews of mural painters, and a committee review focus group will provide evaluation to measure the active and passive civic dialogue.

Measurable Outcome(s)

The only somewhat measurable goal of the proposal was the number of views at the public sites.  While we did miss a major opportunity at the Steele County Fair, which greatly impacted our viewership, we were able to provide viewing opportunities t other public venues.
