"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere" -Martin Luther King Jr.

“We request visual artists, poets, and artists of all mediums to create art that echoes the theme of Peaceful Resistance: Letter(s) From a Birmingham Jail. As in years past, we encourage the artworks to be a collaboration (i.e. a visual artist uses the words of a poet to create a visual art piece), but this is not a requirement. The theme is "Letters from the Birmingham Jail" which is a play on the letter (not plural) from the Birmingham jail. MLK believed we must resist but still be peaceful and encourage love, he laid out peaceful resistance more clearly in that letter than any of his speeches.” – Montu Miller

Works will be accepted from Tuesday January 15 through Saturday January 19, 2019 during regular open hours. All works will be on view during Visions of MLK event on Saturday January 19, 1:00 - 3:00 pm.
