Mills 50 solicited donations from businesses and residents to fund the repainting of five “art boxes”, after the City of Orlando replaced them with new utility cabinets. Many thanks to the generous donors who made the repainting project possible: Amy Rossi Allstate Insurance/ Jennifer Loveitt, David Bernatavitz, Dr. Puxiao Cen, Magdalena Dalsjo, Jeanette Dixon, David K. Gibson, Pauline Ho, Lake Eola Heights Historic Neighborhood Association, Wendy Mayer, Mike Provenzale, Kathryn Stelljes, The Center (GLBT Community Center) and Dr. Brighid Williams.
The five boxes were located at: Colonial & Shine, painted by Bethany Taylor Myers; Mills & Amelia, repainted by the original artist Tim Eggert; Mills & Mount Vernon, painted by Danny Rodriguez; Summerlin & Livingston, repainted by the original artist Antje Dardin and Fern Creek & Colonial, repainted by the original artist Lee Vandergrift.
The next project to be undertaken by Mills 50 is the “Dumpster Art Project”. Local artists will paint fifteen (15) dumpsters in the neighborhood. For a call for artists, please e-mail: [email protected].
