Created by Special Act of the Florida Legislature in 1971, the Downtown Development Board (DDB) serves to strengthen the role of downtown Orlando as the economic, governmental, and cultural center of Central Florida. This year, the DDB is celebrating 50 years of creating exciting experiences and new developments that keep people coming back to discover downtown Orlando.
To commemorate the rich history of downtown Orlando, the DDB will have an exhibit at CityArts beginning on July 15, 2021. The intention is to highlight a selection of works created by some of Orlando’s most talented artists. The creative community makes Orlando a great place to live, work, and play.
The artwork on display should focus on the phases of growth, collaboration, innovation, and changing landscape of downtown Orlando over the past 50 years.
