The Mall at Millenia will host artist Kelsey Montague to create a customized version of her iconic winged mural #WhatLiftsYou beginning Wednesday, June 7th. Montague will craft the mural in remembrance of the 49 lives lost and affirmation of the community’s commitment to survivors and loved ones. The interactive mural is a dedication to the Greater Orlando community and the Acts of Love and Kindness that united us, lifting us together last year.
The unveiling of the mural will take place Friday, June 9th in the Mall’s Grand Court with remarks from City of Orlando District 4 Commissioner Patty Sheehan. Montague’s mural will inspire guests to stand in front of the piece as if they are a part of the creation. The display will be open to the public and available during mall hours through Friday, June 30th. Kelsey Montague’s mural movement has been uniquely crafted in six countries on three continents allowing thousands to share in this positive message.
In solidarity, The Mall at Millenia will turn its distinctive mall lighting rainbow colors and offer #ORLANDOUNITED decals at Concierge for a donation to the Better Together Fund. On Saturday, June 10th, a special community performance by the Orlando Gay Chorus will take place in front of Bloomingdale’s lower level mall entrance at 9am. From 11am to 4pm, OneBlood will be on property for those wishing to donate blood, which played a vital role in the community’s healing last year. Participating merchants will continue their commitment to promote Acts of Love and Kindness through activities leading to Orlando United Day, Monday, June 12th.
The Mall at Millenia is located at 4200 Conroy Road, Orlando, Florida and is open from 10am – 9pm, Monday through Saturday, and from 11am – 7pm on Sunday.
