Leadership Project 2021

Leadership Project 2021

Friday, August 13, 2021 8:00 AM - Friday, December 31, 2021 5:00 PM (CDT)


We are proud to announce that this year’s Greater Shreveport Chamber Leadership Project will be the installation of a public art project located through one of our downtown corridors. This project will be completed in the form of a mural painted on pillars by locally acclaimed artists at the intersection of Marshall Street and the I-20 expressway. This mural will signify the aspirations of continued positive transformation for the Shreveport Bossier City community. It will combine the symbolic metaphor of the butterfly as well as pixelized imagery to welcome a modern and technologically advanced community.

 As you are likely aware, all positive changes require the support of our local community ambassadors to begin and maintain the envisioned work. Over the course of 60-days, we intend to transform a once forgotten stretch of our city to an optimistic landmark of heritage, culture, and progress. We sincerely hope you can be a part of this project. 

To complete this task we are soliciting the support of impactful community members like you. We aspire to raise $26,000 in donations from tiered donors of $1000, $500, and $100 for the transformation of these pillars and our downtown through artwork. Funds will be allocated towards artwork, supplies, maintenance of the area, and a final reveal upon completion. Contributing members of our community will be hospitably hosted at the site upon completion, will receive recognition and a receipt for contributions for tax/accounting purposes. 

We hope to have raised your interest and inspired you to commit to support this transformation. Our city and our community progresses when we have engaged community leaders like you able and willing to support enhancements through our downtown.
