Dwyane Wade dedicated an art exhibit in Miami to the victims of the mass shooting in Parkland, Fla., CBS Miami reported on Sunday.

The Miami Heat star backed the exhibit, titled “Parkland 17,” according to the news outlet. It was included in Miami’s “Art Walk,” which features different art exhibits in the city once a month.

The exhibit includes statistics about gun violence and images of those killed in the shooting.


Calyann Barnett, the exhibit's creative director, told CBS that Wade wanted to include a call to action in the exhibit.

"Dwyane wanted to find a way to honor the victims but he also wanted to make sure that there was something behind this that you can honor, that you can remember what's coming next and what can we do to make sure this never happens again," Barnett said.

The exhibit also features a “Ring Your Rep” phone booth.

"There is a telephone booth to call your congressman," Jaclyn Corin, a student survivor of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, told the station. "I think that's so cool because it's so important to know that there are people who can change this and you can have the option to talk to them and the fact that they're giving the option here so quickly and easily is wonderful."

Wade visited the exhibit on Saturday night, after the Heat played the Washington Wizards, CBS reported.

He had tweeted about the exhibit, and made a surprise visit to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School after the shooting. 

One of the students killed in the shooting, Joaquin Oliver, was buried in Wade’s jersey.

“It’s emotional even thinking about that, that his parents felt that burying him in my jersey was something that he wanted,” Wade said.

He has dedicated the rest of this season to Oliver.
