Exhibition Pays Tribute To King Legacy

ATLANTA -  Acclaimed artist, Gina Chaney, has been selected as the presenting artist for The Taste of Road Scholar event. The Taste of Road Scholar event honors the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The signature event features an interpretative art exhibition and discussion by Chaney as well as keynote presentations by community leader, Reverend Willie M. Bolden, and Emmy Award-winning journalist, Tony Clark. Scheduled for Saturday, April 9, 2011, the reception will be held at the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum.

Gina Chaney’s art exhibit includes several selections from The Servants of Time and The Dream Series. A distinctive mixed art collection, the exhibit is a series of inspirational collages that depicts Chaney’s interpretation of the King Legacy, The Civil Rights Movement, and various historical servants of that important period. “ The collection is brilliant,” says the Honorable Andrew Young. “We look forward to many new projects from the artist Chaney.”

A special fine art exhibition, The Dream Series is a limited edition collection commissioned to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the National King Holiday. Recently debuted at the King Family’s Annual Salute to Greatness Dinner, the exhibition embodies the timelessness of a not so distant era and the lives of the souls who impacted the world through their courage, tenacity, and vision.

The King family has been very supportive of The Dream Series. “The work is great. It’s exciting and new,” says Elder Bernice King, youngest daughter of Dr. King.

The premiere collection reflects the depth of Chaney’s imagination and individual style. Each piece translates a story through designs that awakens and moves the viewer to that time and moment. Each journey is captured through vivid images culminated with organic ingredients of passion, sincerity, and a genuine desire. The body of work provokes raw feelings and transports viewers to this era of change, turbulence, and triumph instantly. Gina Chaney will be on hand to discuss her work and the significance of Dr. King’s legacy in this groundbreaking art exhibition.

The Road Scholar programs represent the next generation of learning and educational adventures. The program uses travel as a means of discovery and journey towards wisdom.

The program utilizes lifelong learning opportunities as a tool to open doors and encourages life-changing personal encounters through experiential travel. The Taste of Road Scholar event focuses on how the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. symbolizes how the power to change the world one viewpoint at a time has impacted lives across the globe.

The Taste of Road Scholar event is hosted by Honorary Co-Chairs Dr. Robert Franklin; the honorable Patsy Jo Hilliard; Martin Luther King III; Reverend Dr. Raphael Warnock; and Mrs. Carolyn M. Young.

The event is presented by Elderhostel, Inc., the not-for-profit world leader in lifelong learning since 1975. This year’s event is made by possible by the generous support of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, AirTran, Georgia Pacific, and McDonald’s.
