Ward is a gay improvisational floral sculptor and dancer. His performance, at 7 p.m., is free and open to the public. No tickets are needed.

In the lecture part of his performance, Ward tells his story of coming out in a very traditionally based military family. He describes his life journey towards discovering what it means to be a man who is openly gay and respected as a human being. He shares his art and his love with a goal of inspiring humanity.

His lecture concludes with a performance of movement, music and flowers designed to encourage audience members to follow their hearts.
