Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said: "Occasionally in life there are those moments of unutterable fulfillment which cannot be completely explained by those symbols called words. Their meanings can only be articulated by the inaudible language of the heart."
On January 21st, 2013 from 12 to 5 p.m. Individual Artists of Oklahoma (IAO) is partnering with the Oklahoma City Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Coalition, the Respect Diversity Foundation (RDF) and the Paramount Theater Space to celebrate the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. at the IAO Gallery, located at 706 W Sheridan in Oklahoma City.

IAO is inviting visual artists of all media to assist attendees in creating a collaborative art piece that will be on display celebrating diversity at the 12th annual Respect Diversity Arts Exhibition in April 2013.

The mission of RDF is to teach tolerance and respect for all people.

IAO's mission is committed to sustaining and encouraging emerging and established artists in all media who are intellectually and aesthetically provocative or experimental in subject matter or technique.

IAO is also inviting performance artists of all genres to perform in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. that day. To join IAO as an artist in "articulating the inaudible language of the heart" this year please contact IAO Gallery at 405-232-6060.
