Traveling exhibit honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Four students were honored with scholarship awards as part of Ivy Tech Community College’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Project.

The Martin Luther King (MLK) Jr. Legacy Project is an ARTivism exhibition that honors the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. All Ivy Tech students were invited to participate in the exhibit by submitting artwork. ARTIvism combines “art” and “activism” and is created to increase social, environmental and technical awareness of communities through the medium of art.

All submissions were juried and scholarships were awarded for first, second and third place. This year, there was a tie for first place. The four students who won created art with the theme of “The Time is Always Right to Do What is Right,” in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

  • First: Pamela Hunt, South Bend/Elkhart Campus, Creative Writing
  • First: Trent K Hawthorne-Richards, Indianapolis Campus, Creative Writing
  • Second: McKenna Wildauer, Indianapolis Campus, 3D Sculpture
  • Third: Rachel Campos, Kokomo Campus, 3D Sculpture

The MLK Jr. Legacy Project will tour five Ivy Tech campuses for an eight-week period beginning January 12. The schedule is as follows:

  • January 12-18: Indianapolis Campus
  • January 19-25: Columbus Campus
  • January 26-February 1: Bloomington Campus
  • February 16-22: Kokomo Campus
