Martin Luther King Jr. Statue Unveiled in Atlanta!
On this windy Monday morning, the #LLPRGirlGang headed down to the Capitol grounds to support our client, Martin Dawe of Cherrylion Studios as the Governor’s office, King family and Georgia State legislature unveiled his latest work, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Statue. The event was held on the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Capitol Avenue. A duplication of the nation’s Liberty Bell rang three times before the 8-foot bronze sculpture was revealed to the audience. It is no coincidence that the unveiling comes on the 54th anniversary of King’s famous, “I Have a Dream” speech and march on Washington. King’s daughter, Reverend Bernice King stated that her father gave the nation a sense of hope in a time of turmoil, and that this statue of her father can have a comparable purpose today.
This was such an inspiring and eye-opening experience for our team to witness and we were thrilled to be a part of history! For more information on Cherrylion Studios and Martin Dawe’s work, check out his website.
