Join us for a special program to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Artists Luis Martin and Aaron Marin will guide viewers through a collage-making session and prompt a conversation reflecting on social and civic issues, injustice, and race while tying in their lived experiences as men of color, Latinx and Black.

In an invitation to participate, viewers will have free access to a digital collage download with images and visual elements selected by both artists.
