In recognition of Orlando United Day – A Day of Love and Kindness, The Mall at Millenia hosted international street mural artist Kelsey Montague to craft a customized version of her iconic interactive mural #WhatLiftsYou in Grand Court.
The mural is in remembrance of the 49 lives lost and an affirmation of the community’s commitment to survivors and loved ones. The artwork is a dedication to the Greater Orlando community and the Acts of Love and Kindness that united us, lifting us together last year.
Montague’s mural inspires guests to stand in front of the piece as if they are a part of the creation. 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 with the LGBTQ community, The Mall at Millenia has turned its distinctive mall lighting rainbow colors and is offer ing #ORLANDOUNITED decals at Concierge for a donation to the Better Together Fund at Central Florida Foundation. The display will be open to the public and available during mall hours through Friday, June 30th.
