In the early hours of June 12th, 2016, our city of Orlando suffered the deadliest terrorist attack since September 11, 2001. Pulse, a nightclub in Orlando, was attacked, killing 49 people and wounding more. A week later, almost 50,000 people attended a candlelight vigil on Lake Eola in honor of the fallen. It was not only an attack on America, but an attack on the diversity of our people. The diversity that we celebrate in America is one of equality, compassion, and acceptance. In remembrance of the lives lost, the slogans ‘Orlando Strong’ and ‘Orlando United’ have been born to help us not forget. The American flag and rainbow colors have accompanied this response as an artistic memorial. Often times, we seek out symbolization in art forms, because it is also diverse and offers insight to our beliefs and spirit of life.
At Baterbys Art Gallery, we represent Orlando and its communities, and offer the best gallery in the city for those who appreciate art and diversity. In the last 8 years, Baterbys has raised over 5 million dollars for various children’s and conservation charities.
