From Monday, January 12 until Monday, January 19, the Children’s Museum will be celebrating the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with On Freedom Corner. Create collages and write your ‘American Dream’ on a picket sign and pose in front of the mural honoring Freedom Corner, the historic corner of Centre Avenue and Crawford Street, that symbolizes the home of the Civil Rights Movement in Pittsburgh.
Attend related Studio Programs during the week:
- Many Hands: From January 17 through 19, join members of the Union Project to create clay birds that symbolize your dreams, which will then be photographed and displayed at the Museum.
- King for a Day: On January 19, read the inspiring words of Dr. King at The Saturday Light Brigade‘s annual “King for a Day” program and enjoy performances by Pittsburgh native Leslie Ezra Smith from his one-man play, Book of Ezra.
