2016 – 2018 // mlk district sculpture exhibition

MLK District Sculpture Exhibition

Since the MLK Mural’s dedication in January 2016, MLK Boulevard has continued to see vibrant transformations. These enhancements contribute to the neighborhood’s unique identity, draw attention to the Big 9’s rich cultural history, and promote the economic growth of the boulevard.

The area welcomes the MLK District Sculpture Exhibition on the lawn of the Bessie. The combination of sculptures selected for this exhibition acknowledge the history of the booming Big 9 African American entertainment district, while celebrating the hope that can be found in transformation and renewal. The MLK District Sculpture Exhibition will be on display through the end of 2018. See below for featured artworks.
