Spotlight: Community Chalk Art Festival Celebrates Diversity
Orlando’s Gateway District encompasses a stretch of Semoran Boulevard north of the Orlando International Airport. The area itself is not new – in fact, it has plenty of history – but within its 12,000 or so homes and hundreds of businesses, a nascent neighborhood is taking shape.
The community is coalescing around a multicultural identity that will express itself in a collective arts event for the first time on Saturday, says Gateway Arts Orlando Chair Susan Wilcox.
Wilcox tells 90.7’s Nicole Darden Creston about the area’s first Community Chalk Art Festival and its theme, “Faces and Places of the World.”
