UNITY by Lorenzo Quinn
'This week we unveiled a piece of art we have had commissioned by Lorenzo Quinn. The name of the piece is “Unity.” That is exactly what we are doing today. We are unified in our defense of this virus, and we are unified in our support of each other. This is an exceptionally strong piece, with an exceptionally strong message. This monumental piece will sit at the entrance of the International Office and will forever stand as the pillar of our organization. I don’t believe any of us would have imagined how meaningful the title of this piece would become. Now, more than any time in recent history, we must remain UNIFIED.'
Chuck Bohn, President, BL Harbert International Group
