Another noteworthy opportunity taking place right now has to do with the Leonardo –- Salt Lake City's new cultural hub. The Leonardo fuses science, technology and art to explore today's technologies, innovations, discoveries, ideas, and art forms and shines a light on curiosity. The Leonardo is currently trying to raise money through an Individual Giving Campaign. This facility is important to our quality of life and we encourage all of our readers and partners to consider making a donation to this worthy cause.
