I’ve been working for a non profit called ArtReach Orlando all summer, and this week was the launch of our very first installation. We showcased artwork done by children who live in Bithlo Florida, just outside of Orlando. This area is basically the Appalachians of Florida. Poor, but full of really great, tenacious people.
The installation reflected the Past, Present, and Future of Bithlo using the children’s art, photography by the award winning Willie Allen Jr, and historic photographs of the area’s past. I think it was a big success.
Its up for the entire month of September, after which it looks like we’ll be touring it around Central Florida.
Here’s a glimpse into what we did!
