Ivy Tech showcasing King art exhibit

A traveling exhibit honoring the legacy of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and featuring artwork by Ivy Tech Community College students is coming to Columbus.

The Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Project is an “ARTIvism” exhibition that will be at Ivy Tech’s Columbus campus, 4475 Central Ave., from Monday through Thursday. The exhibit also will be in the Poling Hall Commons and Fine Arts and Design Gallery.

The “ARTIvism” exhibit combines “art and activism” and is on an exhibit tour to Ivy Tech campuses across the state for eight weeks.

Three students were honored with scholarships as part of the project, creating artwork with the theme of “Moving Forward.”

Emerald Green of Ivy Tech Southwest won first place, Cheryl Collins of Ivy Tech Kokomo Region earned second, and Katie Wheeler, Jazz Miller, Jerika Thomas and Noah Brown of the Ivy Tech Southern Indiana Region tied for third.

The exhibit is free and open to the public.
