An outdoor Urban Art Museum is being planned for the historic Mill 50 neighborhood, located east of downtown Orlando.
This project is set to introduce an entirely new art concept to the city, and will be a completely open-air museum without walls or borders.
Leading the way are local architects James Cornetes and Wes Featherston, who are based in Mill 50.
The pair is hoping to bring more art and culture to the neighborhood.
Local efforts, including a kickstarter campaign have already raised nearly $5,000 towards the cause, and it is thought that the first museum-quality art pieces will be installed around the Mill 50 neighborhood come October. Initially, all of the artists will be commissioned from Orlando and Central Florida.
A few artists, including sculptor Marcos Cruz, are already on board with the project and are donating their times and skills to create original pieces.
To go along with the new Outdoor Urban Art Museum, an associated smartphone app will be released to the public.
Within the app, users will be able to find out more about each piece of art, as well as learn about the businesses in the surrounding area.
In the future, visitors can expect to find murals, paintings, and other art pieces that enhance Mill 50’s aesthetic and atmosphere.
The neighborhood is already known for its quirkiness and appreciation of the arts, and the Urban Art Museum project will only further boost its reputation.
