Immediately following the tragedy, Michael Pilato, Yuriy Karabash and Chimene Hurst formed and led a collaborative team to create a unique mural titled "Inspiration Orlando United."


The Inspiration Orlando United mural features the 49 victims who lost their lives on the night, and the two survivors who passed within a year of the shooting, the mural also feature a selection of survivors, first responders, and caregivers.
