Behind the Robert M. Montgomery, Jr. Building along South L Street you’ll find the Cultural Council’s Project Space, which is used for activities, as well as sculpture or other site specific installations, and offers a commanding view of is the giant, kaleidoscopic Martin Luther King, Jr. mural on the south side of the Cultural Council’s headquarters.
This mural was created in 2017 during CANVAS Outdoor Museum by Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra, who is known for his colorful, photorealistic murals. The Cultural Council chose Martin Luther King, Jr. as the subject of the mural because he represents the important ideas of heroism, community resilience, and the power to make positive change.

Todd Lim: Negative Capability in Times of COVID-19
Exhibition: October 15 – November 27, 2021
Artist Reception: Saturday, October 16, 5–7 p.m. RSVP Online.
The poet John Keats wrote to his two brothers in 1817 defining his term ‘negative capability’ and described it as a space where “a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts without irritable reaching after fact and reason.”
Todd Lim started these paintings during the COVID-19 lockdown and throughout that year, worked intuitively without a preconceived idea or notion of what the paintings would become. Working with whatever materials and supplies were at hand on the property and in the studio became the limitation; the bounds exceeded only through possible acts of creativity and experimentation, trial and error, meditation, and acceptance.

“Born and raised in Peru, yet forced to leave the country due to political unrest, I’ve always missed my country and the beautiful people I left behind. Their respect for home, family, name, and tradition is their long-lasting culture. Division of wealth continues there and is now becoming prominent worldwide. Upon my return, I traveled through the Andes and looked into the eyes of the children, and others. I felt their strife and struggles, their love and beauty, and their hopes and dreams. Through my art I share my experience and my passion for the soul of Peru.”
