Downtown Orlando art featured on WUCF TV’s ARTISODES goes national
The See Art Orlando initiative launched in November, bringing eight new sculptures to the downtown Orlando core. The project was featured on WUCF TV’s Artisodes in February. The segment was so well received that it will now be featured nationally on PBS stations across the country.
The nearly 4-minute video details the art and vision behind these new Orlando landmarks.
“Public art is critical for any healthy downtown. Not only is it beautiful, but it gives people a reason to come downtown; it creates conversation,” said project chairwoman, Jennifer Quigley. “We have art for everybody. All eight sculptures are completely different.”
This segment will air on PBS stations across the country later this year. You can watch the segment here:
