[Chicago] King Day Festival: Tomorrow Is Today

January 20, 2020 | 10:30–3:00

Free with museum admission, no registration required
Museum admission is free for Illinois residents on King Day.

Celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and create a vision for the future guided by artists and activists at work today. Chicago-based sound and visual artist Damon Locks presents a music performance with his Black Monument Ensemble. Move Me Soul dancers present a movement workshop, and young artists from the award-winning Rebirth/Reborn Poetry Ensemble share powerful spoken word pieces. Families can add their own messages of hope for the future to silkscreened postcards from multidisciplinary artist William Estrada’s Mobile Street Art Cart.

To ensure the widest possible participation at this special event, activities in the Ryan Learning Center are free for all, and Illinois residents receive free museum admission on King Day.
