FAVO Every First Friday

On this evening, I installed the 49 portraits of the victims of the Pulse massacre at Falcon Bar. I then had to drop some art at Faith Arts Village Orlando (FAVO), 221 E Colonial Dr, Orlando, Florida 32801 and I decided to stay to get a sketch. FAVO is an old motel on Colonial Drive that has been converted into 36 artist studios. On the first Friday of each month the studios are open to the public. It is an opportunity to window shop for some amazing original art.

Some artists set up tables in the parking lot as well. There is also a food truck or two and tables to sit and eat. There is also music. This month, Cindy Barr (on guitar), Jim Hull (on the Bodhran) and Sharon Harlimer (on violin) played under a tent. They performed Irish folk tunes and other selections. A banner had been printed up and hung on the chain link fence that said, "FAVO Cares" to honor those who lost their lives at Pulse.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
