Join us for a celebration of the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with MLK Days, a three-day family-friendly event, Saturday, January 13 through Monday, January 15, 11am to 4pm each day. Admission is free; donations are gladly accepted! This year’s MLK Days community art project is titled, “Strength in Community,” and will be led by visiting artist Dawn Tree. A self-taught abstract artist, Tree will work with visitors to create a large scale mixed media painting inspired by the image of Dr. King, as well as the children’s book, “Walking with the King,” written by her mother Jocelyn Scales, who marched with Dr. King in the 1960s.
The project will allow guests of all ages and all abilities to contribute their creativity to the giant painting, resulting in a communal work of art that celebrates the strength in our community.
“We look forward to this event each year as it brings the community together to celebrate the dream of Dr. King in a meaningful way, and opens up an opportunity to participate in something bigger than ourselves.” says Stacey Hann-Ruff, director of Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center.
Guests at MLK Days can also enjoy, the popular “Tent of Many Colors,” a giant indoor communal coloring tent that transforms the Murray Arts Building into a gathering space that is both peaceful and inspiring. Step inside the tent and enjoy the therapeutic qualities of coloring! Coloring supplies will be available for use and all ages are welcome. Guests are also invited to step into the artLAB Creative Reuse Center for a hands-on activity, where you can create an original piece of art to take home inspired by Dr. King. And finally, guests are invited to tour, Kindred: Celebrating Our Ancestors, in the Kay Daugherty Gallery, a beautiful art exhibit that explores familial connections. MLK Days is appropriate for all ages; admission is free, thanks in part to financial support from Harris Lawn and Landscaping of Lusby; donations are gladly accepted.
