LeadershipView – Intersection of Art

By Dezaree Seeds, MBA

Every year the Modesto Chamber of Commerce’s Leadership Modesto Program not only identifies, educates and motivates potential community leaders; but also requires its participants to volunteer their time to identify and complete a service project that will have a positive impact in the Community.

The Leadership Modesto 2017 Class, made up of 24 community leaders from various industries, has chosen to raise awareness of the arts in the community while revitalizing Downtown Modesto with the “INTERSECTION OF ART”. This project will entail beautifying two Downtown Modesto intersections – ‘I’ and 10th Street and ‘I’ and 11th Street, just in front of the Gallo Center for the Arts. The intersections will be transformed into creative art designed by local artists, with an emphasis on music and performing arts.

The unveiling of the INTERSECTION OF ART is scheduled for May 12, 2017 from 4:00 – 6:00pm in front of the Gallo Center for the Arts. Join Leadership Modesto for an exciting evening of food, fun and live music as we celebrate the newly-designed downtown crosswalks.
