June 12th marks the one year anniversary of the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting. The faces of the 49 victims who lost their lives that day inspired Mia Merlin, an artist and professor at Armstrong State University, to create the 49 Portraits Project. Hear about it in the audio link below.

“49 Portraits” is on exhibit at Orlando City Hall through June 14, 2017. Click here to see the portraits on 49Portraits.com. You may also find more on the 49 Faces Project page on Facebook.
