Art Helps Heal at Orlando NAP Exhibit

The City of Orlando’s 13th Annual ‘City Artworks’ National Arts Program® Exhibit was on display from June 23rd through August 28th. There were 145 artworks on display throughout the beautiful Terrace Gallery which is located in City Hall. According to Coordinator Paul Wenzel the opening awards reception was a more subdued event this year due to the June 12th tragedy that occurred at Pulse night club. Commissioner Patty Sheehan handed out the awards and volunteered to MC the event due to the Mayors understandable inability to attend. Art enhances well-being and stimulates positive change and so the reception was a time for artists to gather together and celebrate art and life. The event also helped to remind everyone that expressing thoughts and feelings through art can be an important way for a community to heal. The show was a wonderful collection of works and showcased the diversity of the city and those that work and live there.
