MLK DAYS 2021-- A NEW virtual experience!
*** Appropriate for all ages!***
Dr. 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.
Though the pandemic has forced us to change our typical format, we've reinvented all the elements to create a virtual at-home experience to keep everyone safe, connected, and ready to honor the dream with creative activities!
Read below to see how you can tour an art exhibit  and make inspired artwork with our visiting artist from the comfort of home.

Raise a Flag for MLK! A Community artmaking event 

LIVE Zoom sessions, Jan 16-18, 11-12pm each day


Join guest artist, Esther Iverem,  live on Zoom as she walks participants through the creation of a community art project titled, “Raise a Flag for MLK.”  Inspired by the artist's quilted works and Dr. King's legacy, the project invites guests of all ages to design a flag using colors, patterns, and words to reflect the values of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr, or your own concerns and ideas about humanity. 

Here's how it works:

1. Sign up for one of the FREE virtual artmaking sessions

It's easy and free!  Choose from January 16, 17, or 18 options. 11am- 12noon.

2.  Reserve a FREE Pick-up supply kit! Kits include "canvas," assorted papers and fabrics, and gloss medium to act as glue and sealer. Call the office at 410-326-4640 to reserve and pick up your kit at our front desk from Jan 9-15.  Pick up kits remain available in our gallery through February. 

3. OR follow the DIY project instructions on your own

but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.
