Dream Dream: Vote Peace - Jakeen McNeil

Youth from the Roosevelt Center and the East End Family Resource Center Artworks program will present the second annual Martin Luther King Day art exhibit from 2 to 4 p.m. Monday, January 18th, with a short program at 2:30 p.m. at The Art Emporium.

“This is a wonderful program which inspires the adults who are involved as much as it does the children,” said Deborah McHenry, volunteer program coordinator. “We have learned about a number of African-American artists, including Horace Pippin, Alma Woodsey Thomas and Jacob Lawrence.”

The Art Emporium is located at 823 Quarrier Street and gallery hours are Monday through Friday 10 to 6 and Saturdays 10 to 4.

There will also be pieces celebrating King such as Jakeen McNeil’s work (above) “Dream Dream: Vote Peace.”
