mlk, Jr. Commission artwork contest
Since 1987, the City of San Antonio has celebrated the life and legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr. with an annual series of events leading up to one of the largest marches in the country honoring Dr. King. In 2018, the Commission will celebrate 50 years since the first March for Justice in our community. The 2018 March and Commemorative Program will take place on Monday, Jan. 15, 2018.
For the 2018 commemoration, the MLK, Jr. Commission is excited to announce the 3rd Annual Citywide Art Contest for Official Artwork winner, Ed Davis, a longtime Eastside resident. The selected artwork will be used as the visual representation of one of five key words used to inspire artists to create a work that they feel represents one of these key words as related to the world we live in! The words are EQUITY, LOVE, DIVERSITY, UNITY, and SOCIAL JUSTICE.
Mr. Davis will receive public recognition as the creator of the official 2018 San Antonio Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission artwork and an All-Access Pass for two people to all Official 2018 MLK, Jr. Commission events. A plaque will also be given and the piece will hang in the Carver Art Gallery as a part of the official art display.
