Portrait of Martin Luther King Jr. (2021) - Acrylic on Canvas - 67" x 59” - price on request
On Monday, January 17, we celebrated a national holiday in honor of the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., a tireless fighter for the civil rights of African Americans who was assassinated in 1968. The date is commemorated on the third Monday of January of every year, a date close to January 15, the date of his birth in 1929.
Martin Luther King Jr. has also inspired many artists including several of our own. Last year on MLK Jr Day, Julian Voss-Andreae installed his sculpture "Garments of Destiny" in Columbus, OH. This year, we present Michael Azgour's remarkable "Portrait of Martin Luther King Jr." and other new paintings.
