The Orlando Museum of Art is proud to host this community event to commemorate the mural: Inspiration Orlando United. Join us as we unveil this beautiful tribute and hear from community members honoring the lives lost and impacted by the horrific Pulse nightclub shooting.


On the night of June 12, 2016, a festive atmosphere in the Pulse Nightclub was suddenly shattered by violent gunfire. 49 beautiful lives were taken and 53+ injured.  Immediately following the tragedy, Michael Pilato, Yuriy Karabash and Chimene Hurst formed and led a collaborative team to create a unique mural titled “Inspiration Orlando United.” What evolved is a visual narrative illuminating courageous acts of compassion that in-turn revealed a heart of love and kindness in the City Beautiful.

This mural’s mission is to engage and utilize public art to transform this tragic event into a visual shared history with stories of treasured lives, inspirational responses and selfless acts of leadership, love and hope.

The Inspiration Orlando United mural will be on view in the museum rotunda from Tuesday, June 13, through Friday, June 16. The rotunda is open to the public during regular museum hours: Tuesday – Friday, 10 am to 4 pm; Saturday and Sunday, 12 pm to 4 pm.
