Eight Unique Sculptures for the City of Orlando

On November 18, 2013 while the clock was ticking, the clouds and the movements of time were running ,we were part of history while it was written. Around 5:30 pm the inaugural ceremony of the implementation of the eight public art sculptures was happening. Not many people were around but while the sun was leaving, more people gather to listen to the one of the sponsors Bright House Network, the Mayor of Orlando, and the artist of the Global Convergence piece of art, Deedee Morrison .

Once the public announcement was finished, three lucky people won some raffles ( TV, One year free subscription to Bright House, and an iPad). We were not that lucky but still happy to be there and ready to explore and meet the new family of Downtown Orlando. Here I show the map, the order of the pictures is in the order that we did our walking tour. In each location they had a gathering with drinks, postcards, music and more. It was a great experience!
