Target audiences for the “Take a Ride on the Rails Mural” include people of all ages, including area residents and area tourists. It is expected that at least 50% of both adult and youth viewers will report a positive experience and increased knowledge of rail travel in the early 20th century. This mural will increase the community’s perspective of the Depot as a viable venue for arts and cultural activities.Volunteers will record audience reactions to the mural at the grand opening via observation, conversation, and surveys. Attendees will be encouraged to take home self-addressed survey post cards.
Surveys with chocolates attached were distributed with the majority of the respondents giving the exhibit/mural a 9 or 10 (out of 10) in terms of recommending the exhibit and mural to others. Visitors were offered pre-addressed post cards to take home and send back later with comments. Other comments were left by visitors in the regular depot guest book. The visitors ranged from young children to senior citizens. There is a growing awareness of the Baudette Depot as a venue for arts and cultural activities.
