Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

120 community members from diverse cultures, backgrounds, and ages will have the experience of working with a professional artist to create handmade/painted clay tiles, which they will use to construct a public mosaic mural. The City of Long Prairie will achieve another step in its plan for beautification with the installation of a beautiful new mural in one of its public recreational assets, Lake Charlotte. We will track the number of workshop attendees at each workshop host sites. We will seek public responses about the new mural, via surveys and interviews to assess the impact of beautification of our community.
