The Orange County Regional History Center will host a special exhibition of 41 hand-drawn portraits of people from across the state of Florida who died due to Substance Use Disorder.

The exhibition is in cooperation with Into Light Project (Website) and the Orange County Drug-Free Office, and opens on March 5th, featuring the work of Theresa Clower, accompanied by stories from the loved ones they left behind.

“I created Into Light in 2018 after my son Devin died from an overdose of fentanyl. I turned to portraiture as a way of dealing with my grief,” says Clower. “I became inspired by similar stories of addiction and began to draw portraits of others who had died, with the goal of telling their stories and starting a national dialogue about addiction.”
