Murals in Motown

Somewhere between family and work, the volunteers of Murals in Motown find time to inspire positive change wherever they can in Modesto— and that’s exactly what they did at the Gallo Center for the Arts on Nov. 5.

The Finger Painting Face-Off features Modesto’s most influential people in a Finger Painting Showdown, with the theme being Modesto, of course. It was a fundraiser to support art in the community which is Murals in Motown’s entire goal: To bring about positive change with murals that celebrate the area.

There was finger-licking food sponsored by Commonwealth, a sneak peek performance of next year’s Lip Sync Battle, and— most importantly— there was the drive for positive change.
