Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Featured Programs & Events
On MLK Day, we remember the contributions Dr. King and so many others made to the Civil Rights Movement and contemplate all the ways we can make change in our own community:
11:00 am - 3:00 pm - In the Lobby
Read the speeches of Dr. King at the microphone in the "King for a Day" program hosted by The Saturday Light Brigade Radio Show. All ages are invited to take the podium at this annual event.
10:00 am - 5:00 pm - In the Art Studio
Join us in the Art Studio as we explore many different ways to express ourselves and use our own voice through art! From zines, to signs, to collage - how can you relay your thoughts through your art making?
10:00 am - 2:00 pm - In the Art Studio
Explore forgiveness in the Art Studio; first, write or draw about how someone made you mad or sad. Then rip up that paper and mix it in a seed and dirt mixture to make seed balls. When you plant your seed ball, watch how it grows, showing how something beautiful can grow from forgiveness.
This activity will be offered while supplies last.
Noon - 4:00 pm - In the Saturday Light Brigade Radio Studio in the Theater
