Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration

Monday, January 20, 2020

1-5 PM

FREE Admission

 

Join us as we celebrate the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., with our annual Martin Luther King Jr Day Celebration. This year's event will feature hands-on art activities for all ages, including an I Have a Dream-scape collaborative mixed-media mural. You can also write a letter to someone who has inspired you at our Appreciation Station; enjoy a snack at our cookie table and hot chocolate bar; and dance to the music of local DJ group Wavy Bunch Sound.

 

Wavy Bunch Sound is comprised of duo DJ Flipwave and DJ African Wolf, coming from Ghana and Haiti respectively. In past years WBS has introduced Pittsburgh to the heritage of Afro-Caribbean culture with events like Ghana@62 and All White Affair:Rep Your Flag. These events give guests background and history through music, allowing people to enjoy and experience the black diaspora that is Afro-Caribbean via Soca, Zouk, Reggae, Dancehall, Afro-Beats, Hip-Hop/Rap and R&B/Soul of the past and present day.

 

The museum is typically closed on Mondays, but all three of our buildings will be open from 1-5 PM. Please note: the Turrell floor will be closed.
