As the sound of jazz filled the air, local volunteers put their artistic skills to work at the intersection of Main and Gibbs Streets on Sunday.

The project called "Composer's Crossings" was organized by local mural artist Shawn Dunwoody.


Dozens helped paint keyboard designs on the crosswalks and Rochester's Flower City logo in the middle of the intersection. It's all about highlighting the center of arts and music in the city.


"Despite having a design degree from RIT, I have not pursued art in many many years but I have quite an appreciation for arts, music and culture⁠— especially here in the city," said volunteer Amy Dragon of Pittsford.

Dragon says she can't wait to show off the finished product to friends and family she's bringing to jazz fest this week.
