Martin Luther King As Art


Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day here in the U.S. which happens to actually fall on his birthday this year. Scrolling through Instagram this morning, it’ inspiring and beautiful to see so many brilliant artists creating their own visions and interpretations of MLK. It's worth taking a minute to consider Martin Luther Kings use of art and media during the civil rights movement. He may not have created political paintings but he did use his words - and words as art are powerful. Think about it, we’re still quoting “I Have A Dream” and by now, for many of us, it rolls off our tongues in a melodically. We all become poets and orators when we quote MLK. 


Here’s an image from my favorite MLK art this year by Watson Mere! You can get your print at his website, www.ArtOfMere.com. The message is so powerful, yet simplistic, I’ve shared it on both of my Instagram Profiles, instagram.com/daisijo and instagram.com/daisijoreviews hopefully to inspire my followers.

  1. Several aspects of the task can turn out to be filled with problems as well as miscues. This can suggest a lot of different points relying on the property owner you ask, however, there are normally complicated issues that develop. With such a task, homeowners are much better served to work with a residential painter to come and also do the exterior residence painting exterior Painters near me New Orleans for them. Not only will it save the homeowner priceless time so that they can complete other daily or home renovation projects, but however it might also conserve them some money.

  2. Liposomal Vitamin C doesn't have unique perks over other forms. Just like regular vitamin C, it may help combat oxidative stress, enhance immune function, improve collagen production, boost iron absorption, and support overall cardiovascular and brain health.
