In honor of Martin Luther King Jr, Arizona-based artist, Tiesha Harrison, the Chandler Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Division, and the Vision Gallery invite the public to learn more about the Civil Rights leader by partaking in an interactive art game at the 27th Annual Chandler Multicultural Festival.

Each participant will have the opportunity to throw a Velcro ball at a board that spells out community. Depending on which letter they hit, the participant will be invited to create, make or learn something about Martin Luther King, Jr.

After the event, Harrison will collect all of the participatory parts to create a collaged portrait of the esteemed icon that will be on display at the Vision Gallery through the month of February.
