Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Our goal of the planning process is to work with artists in creating the artwork for the painted railroad car project. Through this planning process we will be able to achieve success in working with artists to develop proposals, choosing the artist to paint the mural, and begin to raise funds for the project. We will have been successful if we have a proposal from an artist that will work well in the city of Montevideo. We will then be able to write a project grant and move forward with fundraising.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We asked for feedback on the artist selection process. On completion of the project, we asked the artists what they thought of the project. This informed the MAP committee on how to improve the project process for future project decisions.
