The Dream Continues: Photographs of Martin Luther King Murals by Vergara

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 18-01-2013 05-05-2013 15 The Dream Continues: Photographs of Martin Luther King Murals by Vergara Since the 1970s Camilo Vergara has been traveling across the United States photographing and thus documenting hand-painted murals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as they appeared on the walls of establishments such as car repair shops, barbershops, and fast food restaurants in city streets and alley ways. The folk art portraits have expressed how the inner-city residents saw the slain civil rights leader--at times a statesman, a hero, a visionary, or a martyr. Vergara also discovered that these images were often based on iconic photographs of Dr. King but that, depending upon the neighborhood where they were created, the portraits could take on the likeness of Latinos, Native Americans, or Asians. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=127139 New-York Historical Society true DD/MM/YYYY
