Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018
Included with museum admission
Take inspiration from the life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and explore "The 1968 Exhibit" during this exhibit opening celebration. Create screen-printed activist posters; join in a spoken word activity; be of service by packing personal hygiene kits for the Dorothy Day Center; and enjoy performances by students at the Walker West Music Academy, a learning community rooted in the African American experience.
This program is made possible through sponsorship by General Mills and the MLK Holiday Breakfast. This program is also made possible by the Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008.
