ORLANDO UNITED DAY: JUNE 12

On June 12, 2017, join us on Orlando United Day during the public commemoration at Pulse Nightclub at 11:00 a.m. and then at Lake Eola beginning at 4 p.m.

The draft mural will be on display for the first time to the public during events taking place in cooperation with the City of Orlando, Orange County and with the owners of Pulse Night Club. Information about the events are available at the City of Orlando's website and Orange County's website.

In the years to come, Orlando and the surrounding communities will be home base to a series of 49 artistic responses, in a variety of geographic destinations, with a featured Grand Mural to be installed in the heart of the Central Florida region.

 
Healing requires being able to put traumatic events in context. After events such as the Pulse shooting, it is important for people to come together and share their grief but also reinforce their belief in the goodness of humanity. The mural project will allow everyone to contribute to honoring those souls that we lost and those who were injured. More importantly, it will allow our community to come together and remember that love will always win.
