If you haven’t already seen Selma, perhaps that is the most appropriate way to spend (at least part of) this coming Monday. But if you have already seen it, or if you’re looking to fill the rest of your Martin Luther King Day, you may want to stop by AVAM for a day of free admission and educational programming, along with fabulous performances by Keur Khaleyi African Dance Company and Abu The Flute Maker. The museum will host special workshops throughout the day, and is even offering packets for educators to help inspire and guide the next generation of visionaries. AVAM’s current exhibit (which you’ll also have access to with your free admission on Monday) is The Visionary Experience: Saint Francis to Finster. The 20th original exhibition at the museum champions life’s grand “Aha!” and “Eureka!” moments, held in common by Earth’s most dynamic and intuitive “evolutionaries:” inventors, scientists, dreamers and saints; each touched by some lightening bolt of greater understanding, insight, grace and muse. When you look at it that way, Dr. King’s life and work jibe completely with what AVAM stands for and celebrates: the full appreciation and expression of all people’s visions, dreams, and unique contributions to the world. What better way to honor his memory and the work of all those dedicated to freedom of the human spirit?
AVAM will honor Martin Luther King Day on Monday, January 19th with free admission from 10am-6pm and special programming all day. For more information, visit www.avam.org.
