"Miami should be known for its vibrant culture, not for the smallest orca prison in North America," Miami Beach Mayor Phillip Levine said. "This beautiful mural is helping make it clear that the Miami Seaquarium is no place for this far-ranging, majestic, and endangered orca, who desperately needs her freedom."
As the art world flocks to Florida for the high-profile Miami Art Week, the city’s most tragic black-and-white figure is making a splash in the middle of Wynwood, thanks to an 1,550-square-foot (83.5′ x 15.5’) mural of the lone, captive orca Lolita that proclaims, “Free Lolita!”
The mural can be seen on the 23rd street side of the building located at 2247 NW 1st Place, owned by animal advocate Mayor Philip Levine.
