The Contemporary Arts Center Announces Free Admission on Martin Luther King Jr Day January 17

In Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Holiday Recognizing One of Our Nation’s Greatest Heroes

And in Reflection upon His Poignant Question: Where Do We Go From Here?

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and in celebration of the final weeks of the current exhibition Where Do We Go From Here? Selections From La Colección Jumex, the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) announces free admission all day next Monday, January 17.

Dr. King’s last published book was Where Do We Go from Here? and in the same year, 1967, he delivered a speech of the same title to The Southern Christian Leadership Conference in which he stated “Now, in order to answer the question, ‘Where do we go from here?’ which is our theme, we must first honestly recognize where we are now.”

The CAC exhibition Where Do We Go From Here? Selections From La Colección Jumex takes the same stance: that in order to answer this important question, we must first look at what is happening now. The show—featuring work from one of the most important private collections of contemporary art—examines art as a cultural index. The exhibition is nearing the end of its run (on view through January 30), so this marks one of the last opportunities for visitors to see iconic works from such heavy hitters as Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Donald Judd, Jenny Holzer and many more.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the CAC has created a speaker series inviting global game-changers to answer the question: Where do we go from here?The next one is the Femme Den on Monday, January 24 at 6pm. The Femme Den started as an underground collective of international women at Smart Design (an international design firm), searching for answers in a world that was not designed for them. They’ve now grown into a leading team of design researchers, industrial designers, and engineers who are paving the way for a deeper understanding around design and gender. They speak around the world on the topic, working to stimulate positive change in the design and business communities. Next speaker: Michael Edson—Monday, March 7.
