- 2015 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day March
If you plan on submitting an entry to the City of San Antonio Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission inaugural art contest, you'd better finish that project up because deadline (Friday, November 6 at 5 p.m.) is quickly approaching.
The commission will select a local artist's work, which will be used as the visual representation of the 2016 commemoration theme: "King Week: Uniting Communities to Advance Humanity."
“San Antonio is home to one of the nation’s largest commemorations honoring Dr. King, and utilizing the work of a local artist for our annual commemoration is a great addition to the city’s official events,” Brandon Logan, chair of the San Antonio Martin Luther King, Jr. Commission, says in a press release. “This 2016 theme, ‘King Week: Uniting Communities to Advance Humanity,’ is in the spirit of Dr. King’s principles and the artwork contest is a fitting way to visually represent and pay homage to Dr. King.”
The contest is open to Bexar County residents and student artists are encouraged to submit pieces. A panel of community judges will choose the selected artist, who will receive recognition for creating the official 2016 commemoration artwork, along with two all-access passes to all of the official 2016 commission events.
