Emotions High As Students, Families Visit Dwyane Wade's Parkland 17 Exhibit

Wade has visited Stoneman Douglas High and spent time with the parents of Joaquin Oliver after the parents of the 17-year-old who was killed during the attack revealed their son was buried wearing a Wade Heat jersey.

Miami Heat star Dwayne Wade is not stopping his support and tributes for the victims of the February 14 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 people dead.

Wade previously wore sneakers with Oliver's name on them during a win over the 76ers and announced on social media he will honor Oliver throughout the rest of the season. We are the voices for the people that don't get to be heard.

Artist Evan Pestaina created the exhibit, which features murals and 17 desks to symbolize each person who died at the Parkland high school.




The "Parkland 17" exhibit runs until 5 p.m. Sunday at an art space at 2775 N.W. Third Ave.in Miami's Wynwood section.

Statistics about gun violence could be seen on the walls. Calyann Barnett, the exhibit's creative director, explained that Wade wanted to make sure the exhibit wasn't just about remembering.

Wade plays for the Miami Heat. "I have a name". "He did so well with relaying a message", Lex Michael posted to Twitter.

"I really like how they did commemorate the victims, first and foremost", said Corin. "This art exhibit was so powerful, so emotional, so raw, words can not describe what being there last night meant to me".
