MLK Day 2022: “It Starts with Me: Shifting Priorities to Create the Beloved Community”

Monday, January 17, 2022, 10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

About The Event

This year the museum offers activities and meditations for visitors of all ages on the King Center’s 2022 King Holiday theme, “It Starts with Me: Shifting Priorities to Create the Beloved Community.” The theme issues us all a challenge—consider what actions we can take, as individuals, to collectively work toward the creation of the “Beloved Community,” and then go do them.  

On Monday, January 17, 2022, join us in honoring Dr. King’s legacy and rising to the challenge through art.  

Enjoy free admission to the galleries and to the acclaimed, thought-provoking exhibition Picturing Motherhood Now

Pick up a free Family Discovery Pack or MLK Day Collection Connection Guide to explore artworks that tell stories about the power of the individual and communities, inspire personal reflection, and motivate action toward a collective greater good. 

Contribute to Dr. King’s vision of the Beloved Community by participating in a Take Action Challenge. Select a “Take Action” card and commit to fulfilling the action it presents within the next few months. Share a challenge on a new card for another person to take. 

The museum will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with COVID safety measures in effect. 


Family Discovery Pack: This fresh resource debuts on MLK Day as a wearable waist pack filled with kid-friendly tools and activities that spark creative and insightful conversations as they reveal personal connections with artworks and artists. 

The Revealing Krishna: Journey to Cambodia’s Sacred Mountain exhibition will be closed to the public on Monday, January 17, 2022.
