1-18-10: Pop Art and Dr. King’s Message

January 17, 2010 at 6:30 pm Leave a comment

On Monday we celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King.  He was born on January 15th 81 years ago.  At the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, for the third year, they are celebrating the life and ideals of Dr. King with a week’s worth of activities, including a day of community service today, exhibitions, a discussion of spirituality and art, and an award ceremony to honor those who have been trailblazers and champions for social justice and equality.

The centerpiece of MICA’s Unity Week is the artist keynote address, which this year, will be delivered on Wednesday by Mina Cheon.  She’s a media artist, writer, and Interdisciplinary Professor at MICA. She joins Tom to talk about some of the themes she’ll be addressing in her speech.
