Civil Rights Mural Painting Day!

Sponsored by the Peace and Justice Center and the University of Maine Art Museum:
Saturday, March 10, 11am to 4pm
University of Maine Museum, 40 Harlow St, Bangor
 
Kids age 3 and up, parents, and anyone else are invited to come help paint!
 
Thanks to a generous grant from the Commission for Cultural Development for the City of Bangor, we are able to offer a day of painting and learning about some of our great civil rights heroes. We’ll be learning about migrant farm labor leader Cesar Chavez, African-American rights champion Martin Luther King Jr., women’s labor rights leader Rose Schneiderman, African-American publisher on civil rights and UN consultant WEB DuBois, and women’s rights leader Alice Paul. 
 
We’ll have plenty of space left for individual contributions as well, so bring your creativity! Our finished mural will be displayed during the spring/summer season at UMAM in the outdoor courtyard. Hope to see you there!
