On Monday, Martin Luther King Day, my colleague, Patrick, and I had the opportunity to present the work of our 2nd year studio, Community by Design, at the Art and Design for Social Justice Symposium at Florida State University. It was a wonderful experience, not only sharing what our students were able to accomplish with their bus shelter project, but also learning about all the exciting and meaningful activities happening at other campuses around the U.S.
As could be expected, many references were made throughout the day to the work of Dr. King. As a result, my sketchbook is now overflowing with quotes from this incredible leader. A few of my favorites: "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." And last, but not least, "What are you doing for others?"
