"Martin Luther King Jr.: Life, Times and Legacy" 

Presented by:
The Amistad Center for Art and Culture 
at Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art.

The exhibit explores the social issues of the civil rights era and recognizes King's contribution by examining the art that was created in response to the political and cultural pressures and opportunities of the late 1950s and 1960s.

King's legacy is examined through contemporary works that explore the themes of race and injustice in America. These works ask visitors to compare and contrast the climate of today with the that of King's lifetime and asses the progress of a people and a nation.

Museum hours: Wed-Fri, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sat and Sun, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Open until 8 p.m. First Thursday of the month. Admission: $10 adults, $8 senior citizens, $5 students (age 13 through College with ID); children 12 and younger and museum members, free. First Thursday admission: $5. Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, 600 Main St., Hartford. Information: 860-244-2999.
