MLK DAY Activities
*** Appropriate for all ages!***

Strength in Community: A Public Art Project

Visiting artist Dawn Tree will lead visitors in the creation of an exciting public art project. A mixed media painting based off the image of Martin Luther King Jr. will be completed at the conclusion of the event. Inspiration will come from Dr. King as well as the children’s book “Walking with the King,” written by Tree’s mother Jocelyn Scales, who marched with King while attending college in the 60’s.

King left us with a wealth of wisdom on how to create a more just, humane, and peaceful world. We celebrate his legacy with art-inspired experiences centered around his nonviolent philosophy.

A Tent of Many Colors -- the Communal Coloring Tent Returns!

The popular community coloring tent will transform the Murray Arts Building into gathering space that is both peaceful and inspiring. Step inside the tent of many colors and enjoy the therapeutic qualities of  coloring! Coloring supplies will be available for use and all are welcome. Choose a design, find a seat, make a friend, relax and enjoy the atmosphere. A great space for all ages to enjoy.
