Art Force Five

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Compassion

Commemorate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with activities focused on Dr. King’s vision of becoming a “beloved community, grounded in love and peace.”

Meet local author Nykki Matthews and enjoy live story readings of her book The Truth About Me, a story celebrating individuality at noon and 1 p.m. Gather round local edutainer Miss Sweet Potato Pie and listen to a story celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr., at 2 p.m.

Also, meet members of Alfred University’s Art Force Five, a group that travels the country paying tribute to empowerment icons such as Harlem Renaissance leaders, suffragists, and more. See the group’s display of mosaic portraits and paint a tile to add to the art piece.
