Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The planned mural will not only catch the eye of local people but will showcase our history to travelers passing through Sauk Centre on any of the three highways intersecting here. We anticipate more people participating in: community education classes in art, greater entries in the county fair, and more visitors to the local history museum- all which are measurable outcomes. This beautiful mural will also attract support of additional community murals anticipated in the coming years. This organization will meet periodically to discuss feedback from community members during the project. It will also meet a year from project start date to discuss outcome variables to determine if objectives have been met, whether another mural is reasonable, and if so, possible themes.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Public outreach was achieved through the creation of a Facebook page for the project, as well as, the inclusion of the mural on upcoming historical walking tour brochures for Sauk Centre. Now that the mural is complete, educational field trips to it are in the process for the upcoming 2015/2016 school year for both the private and public schools in Sauk Centre. Local offerings of painting classes/events have increased substantially.
