Experience the inspirational, fascinating, and insightful story related by Loudonville resident and internationally-recognized artist, Patrick Morelli.
He’ll talk about and illustrate his creation of the 10-foot bronze, Roots-inspired “Behold” monument honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (photo below)
“Behold” overlooks Dr. King’s tomb at the King National Historical Park in Atlanta, Georgia. A memorable, profoundly personal, 10-year odyssey related by the artist who worked with King’s father (“Daddy” King), Mrs. Coretta Scott King, Hon. John Lewis, and Alex Haley to create, independently, a permanent, historically-significant tribute to King.
“Behold” images and the artist’s portfolio can be viewed on the his visual arts website www.MorelliART.com and instagram.com/morelliartny/
The library will be closed on Monday Jan. 20 in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
