ORLANDO, Fla. — An exhibit honoring Orlando healthcare workers who served on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic is now open at the Orange County Regional History Center.
The exhibit, called “Healthcare Heroes: Portraits of Orlando Health’s Frontline Workers,” opened on Monday.
It includes large portraits by Central Florida-based artist Nelson Cárdenas that will be on display in the museum’s atrium through Aug. 15.
The museum said Cárdenas, who is also a cook at the Orlando Health Dr. P. Phillips Hospital, created the portraits of Orlando Health employees using oil paints and a technique called pyrography, which uses blowtorches.
His artwork provides an intimate look at the community’s frontline healthcare staff who have worked tirelessly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
