The Forsyth Galleries, 2nd floor of the MSC
From the earliest records of humankind, people have been moved to study, sketch, paint and sculpt living forms. Artists have been inspired not only by human models, but also by wildlife, domestic pets, exotic animals, insects, birds and reptiles. The Forsyth Galleries’ latest exhibition, Art Menagerie, provides a whimsical artistic perspective on the living creatures who share our lives.

The Absolute Truth…Nothing but Lies, explores the underlying ethical implications that result when an art form, previously unchanged for generations, is suddenly redefined through technology and shifting social attitudes through the work of two artists from similar backgrounds that took their craft to very different places.

Transportation will be provided back to Sadie Thomas Park at the conclusion of the program. In the event of inclement weather, the program will begin at 10:00 a.m. at Kemp Elementary School. This 17th annual event is to commemorate the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by bringing the Brazos Valley community together to reflect on the principles such as courage, truth, justice, compassion, dignity, humility, and service for which Dr. King embodied. A tribute, featuring members of the community, will follow the walk.
In congratulatory efforts of the re-election of President Barack Obama, we will be previewing the Inauguration following the Martin Luther King, Jr. Tribute at 11a.m., along with visiting booths from agencies around Brazos County.
