Leadership 2019 - Arts Mural Project
Leadership Livingston Team Projects
The Livingston Parish Arts Council Building received a makeover after the Leadership Livingston Class of 2019 adopted the long-awaited mural as their community service project. The class secured $3,000 in corporate sponsorships to cover most of the $4,000 project. The Arts Council will cover the remaining amount for the 70-foot by 9-foot image that will wrap around the Arts Council exterior walls.
Mary Felder, past president of the Arts Council, said that this project is something that the board has been wanting to do for five years. We were so happy when we heard that the Leadership Group was interested in this project. Their help gave us the fire to really get started.
Tina Cifreo, Blount General Construction, said the group chose the project to encourage an appreciation for the arts in Livingston Parish. We wanted to highlight the classes for adults and children that the Arts Council offers in visual and performing arts. And we wanted people to start thinking that they don't need to go to Baton Rouge to experience art, we can do it right here. Long term, we would love to see a performing arts facility in Livingston Parish.
Charlotte Reynolds, Arts Council Secretary, said that the mural, which should be complete this summer, is already helping to raise awareness of the location and programs of the Arts Council. ?People have already stopped by to take pictures of the mural and a lot of people have dropped in to check on the progress.?
