The Dream Initiative

In honor of the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington for Jobs & Freedom, the Student Unions & Activities’ Arts & Culture Committee and the College of Liberal Arts will host a ‘Dream’ Art Exhibition on August 17 - Oct 1 in the second floor gallery of Coffman Memorial Union, and Sept 1 - Oct 13 in the Larson Art Gallery at St Paul Student Center.

Join us for a reception on September 28 from 6-8 PM at the Second Floor Gallery of Coffman Memorial Union. Enjoy food and refreshments, as well as a talk from the artists.

The exhibition will showcase artworks from local artists inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous dream, and the impact the historic March had on our country and world. The March drew thousands of people, including artistic and cultural leaders of all kinds. We hope this exhibition taps into that energy, and inspires all who view it to continue to reflect on the impact and legacy of Dr. King’s dream.
