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.
