The Leadership Pueblo Class of 2013 believes that art is an important part of the Pueblo Community and would like to help enhance the visual arts in the downtown Creative Corridor. The class of 2013 will add a mural to the Colorado Bluesky Enterprises, Inc. building located in downtown Pueblo. The Leadership Pueblo Class and Bluesky have come to an agreement to produce a mural that depicts a specific story related to the buildings rich history, originally R.T. Frazier’s Saddlery.
This is a paid public art opportunity for a qualified artist or team of artists working collaboratively to create an artist’s interpretation and design depicting the story of “The 1921 Pueblo Flood & A Horse Named Lucky” written by Eileen Tannich Gose for a wall on the west side of the Colorado Bluesky Enterprises, Inc. building located at 115 W. 2nd Street, Pueblo, Colorado.

About Leadership Pueblo:
Every year the Greater Pueblo Chamber coordinates the Leadership Pueblo program. The program is designed for individuals interested in developing their leadership skills. The curriculum affords each class the opportunity to network with up-and-coming leaders and current decision makers in the community in order to grasp a better understanding of the issues facing the Pueblo community, as well as a chance to discuss solutions to these problems. As a requirement for graduation, all leadership classes are required to plan and implement a class project designed to benefit the community.
The 2014 program begins in January with an overnight retreat and is followed with seven additional sessions scheduled once every three weeks. Sessions include Pueblo’s past, present and future, state and local government, education, health and human services, Pueblo’s resources, the arts and media.
Tuition for the program is $550. Scholarships are available through the El Pomar Foundation for minority applicants, and two scholarships are also available through the Southern Colorado Community Foundation. All scholarships require a three-year commitment to community volunteerism.
