The Millet House, 440 W 1st Street in Mesa
invites you to our Martin Luther King Day celebration Jan 16, 2023 12-5 pm
After the Downtown Mesa parade, please join us at the Millet House Gallery and Community Space as we create a permanent Unity mosaic under the guidance of Andrea Rogers, watch a soul-stirring performance piece by Marva Harris, and have fun creating art to take home with the assistance of Theresa Schlechty and Meghan Mitchell!
The Gallery itself will be open all day with our current show, “Celebrating Life!”
12 noon-3 pm: Gallery opens, and art workshops get underway
3 pm – 5pm: art workshops continue and mosaic project begins
3:30 pm: Marva Harris will be performing a piece called “Bigger Than” which coincides with the name of a 17 x 64” mixed media, stretched canvas, original painting of the same name which was created to elicit a poignant dialogue on being Black in America. The artist seeks to invite a wider audience to hear the positive self-talk that is necessary in order to survive and thrive as a Black person living in the U.S. This performance is dedicated to the late great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who dreamed a world “bigger than” the small space of ignorance.
Bring your water bottle and we can fill it!
Rain? No problem. We go forward and you can stay dry!
