This exhibit features drawing, painting, ceramics, photo, mixed media, and sculpture, which is designed to celebrate and commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. through the literary works of Dayton poet, Paul Laurence Dunbar.
A team of local and regional African-American artists were challenged to create a work of art inspired by Paul Laurence Dunbar that speaks to some of the same social concerns for which Dr. King lived and died. Concerns like injustice, inequality, civil liberty, poverty, and peace.
The 2018 Visual Voices visual artist team members are: Abner Cope, Dwayne Daniel, Clifford Darrett, Willis Bing Davis, Derrick Davis, Horace Dozier, Lois Fortson-Kirk, Al Harden, Kevin Harris,
