Project Gettysburg Leon (PGL) has worked with artists of Nicaragua over many years, including delegations of artists that have visited Gettysburg. The Gettysburg Area High School and Lincoln Elementary School have permanent works of mural art that testify to the cultural exchange between the two sister cities.

Classes in art, dance and music have been part of visiting delegations with HACC, Vida Charter School and many other Adams County grade schools and high schools. Adams County artists have also visited Leon many times to work directly with Nicaraguan artists. The pandemic has meant no delegations between the two countries recently, but those will happen again.

Greg Bowles is the current director for Project Gettysburg Leon, the sister city program between Gettysburg and the country of Nicaragua that was founded in 1986.
