MLK Dare to Dream Day

While many of the activities offered at the American Visionary Art Museum were aimed at children, the day’s events – celebrating the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. – brought out out the kid in many adults who attended.

“Children of all ages” could participate in a “Wear Your Dream” button-making workshop.
Birthday cake was also offered to all at the free event.
The day’s program also included several performances and a poetry slam.
