MLK Day of Art Service

On Monday, January 16 from 1-4pm in
Winsett Park, 316 N. 4th Ave. we were joined by dozens of people to paint and dialogue about the importance of Dr. Martin Luther King in our daily lives and work.

This was an opportunity for Tucson to honor Dr. King’s legacy through arts service. The MLK Day of
Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community. A Walk Up Art Station was present on site where the public shared stories, ideas and commented on our
Together We Thrive Mural Project design for the site. 

We are really excited because this spring we start actually painting the mural! 

Workshops continue every Tuesday from 3-5pm at Howenstine Magnet High School, 555 South Tucson Boulevard.

Here are some samples of the work created:
