Celebrating Community: A Public Art Project

Visiting artist Pinkie Strother will lead visitors in the creation of a nostalgic public art project. View Pinkie's exhibition, "Childhood Memories," comprised of paintings and sculptures of scenes of her childhood community in Calvert County. Meet the artist, hear her stories, and work with her to create our own collaborative community of clay figurines.

King left us with a wealth of wisdom on how to create a more just, humane, and peaceful world. We celebrate his legacy with art-inspired experiences centered around his nonviolent philosophy.
