Martin Luther king Jr is one of 3 people to have a national holiday observed in their honor.
The American visionary art museum as a result had a MLK day. Missing the parade earlier on gave me the chance to go into the museum and appreciate some of the work that was on display. Everything was amazing.
The installation when a man loves a woman by Mary Proctor (picture # 2)was hella interesting tho. You see the maker of that painting used to live in a trailer behind her house( idk why she might have been eccentric) and so one day the trailer caught fire and burned down. And during the fire the doors and windows of the trailer expanded and her family couldn’t get out. She lost three people and from that pain she created a piece of art. She now designs doors and windows and incorporates pieces of ‘em in her art 😮
Things have a funny way of working out I guess and in a way I think that’s what the holiday is here to remind us😯
