2nd Annual MLK Portrait Project Auction
Is NOW LIVE!

Visit EEA’s MLK Portrait Program

at the Gallery on March 12, 2022

to View the Collaboration Between 12 Schools

The MLK Portrait Project is a way to honor the impact of civil rights leaders by working together in unity- each creating an individual part, that ultimately becomes a whole. Every panel style is different, yet they all fit together. Each year it engages local High School art students to create large portrait mosaics as creatively as they desire. At the completion of the project, all portraits will hang in their corresponding schools, then displayed in a public gallery, then auctioned off to support EEA’s scholarship fund for art students in need.

What is an MLK Portrait?
———-
Our MLK Portraits consist of 16 – 12 x 12 panels, and each participating student creates one or two panels. The panels come together as a 4 ft x 4 ft finished portrait! The students are encouraged to express themselves through the art process and can get as creative as they want as long as the image or shapes of their panel stand out, so that when put together it visually forms a portrait. Once all the panels are complete, they are assembled and strengthened for hanging.
