Before I die at First Thursday

The theme at 1st Thursdays at the Orlando Museum of Art (2416 North Mills Ave Orlando, Florida) was “Before I Die: Ultimate Celebration of Life”. This theme invited artists to submit their version of a life well lived. On the “Before I Die, I want to…” wall, guests could write their aspirations. Quotes I saw on the wall included, “Visit the Holy land”, “Become more ambitious”, and “Repeat all the good again.”

On the first Thursday of each month, you can discover local artists, listen to live music and mingle with an eclectic mix of people. There are cash bars serving wine, beer, soft drinks and water, and café offerings from area restaurants.

There was music by DJ Atnarko Bear, Food by Hawker’s Asian Street Fare, and a Time-lapse by Chalk Whisperer Kim Panella. Admission for museum members was free and $10 for visitors.

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
