Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The primary goal for this planning project is to complete project research, including defining materials, design concept, budget, artist solicitation process, timelines, and identifying local match options. We will know if we achieved our goal if we have the defined the appropriate materials, design concept, budget, artist solicitation process, timelines, and identifying local match options in order to prepare a project application in July 2017. We will be able to document the information collected and learned through our research and possibly use it for other community murals and have it available to share with other communities upon request.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We developed a material list, budget, artist’s names and qualification metric, researched and identified an image that could be used for the baseline mural. We consulted another mural artist for advice. We also talked to a variety of community groups for financial and volunteer support. Planning team members also attended the Rural Arts and Culture Summit and developed a concept for an artist reception and open house celebration for the mural.
