I Have A Dream
An international art exhibition has come home, so to speak. Right now, the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site has on display “I Have A Dream: International Tribute to MLK.”
Organized by the town of Sitges, Spain, the exhibit culls together works by seventy artists from every continent, all interpreting King’s dream.
We recently visited the gallery and spoke with Saudia Muwwakkil, Public Affairs Officer for the National Historic Site.
The “I Have A Dream” exhibit runs now through July 19th.
