Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and the SEE ART ORLANDO Board of Directors invite the Central Florida community to “Sculpting the Future of Downtown,” the official unveiling event of Orlando’s permanent, contemporary sculpture collection on Monday, November 18, 2013. The eight iconic sculptures that are part of the SEE ART ORLANDO collection are designed to enhance the aesthetic experience and cultural image of Downtown Orlando.
This free, community kick-off celebration will feature music, entertainment for all ages, food and prizes.
Festivities will begin at the Seaside Bank Plaza at 5:30 p.m. and will continue at the History Center and Lake Eola Park until 7:30 p.m on November 18, 2013.
Supported by private philanthropy, SEE ART ORLANDO is thought to be the largest permanent sculpture collection of different pieces by different artists under construction at one time. After more than 180 submissions from 16 countries and 36 states were reviewed, eight internationally-renowned artists, including one from Central Florida, were selected to create works of art inspired by various elements of Orlando and embodying the diverse fabric of the city. Pieces in the collection are of all different sizes and are crafted from a variety of mediums ranging from stainless steel to limestone with features that incorporate kinetic energy, solar power and LED lights.

Monday, November 18, 2013: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
