MLK Portrait Program

MLK Portrait Program Auction

The MLK Portrait Project was inspired by the work of EEA teacher Kenneth Jackson to engage talented student artists across the East End of Long Island to honor Martin Luther King Jr. by working together in unity. Each contributor creates an individual part that ultimately becomes a whole. Every panel style is different, yet they all fit together. 

100% of The MLK Portrait Project Auction proceeds support the EEA's Art Scholarship Fund to support the pursuit of higher education in the arts to those in need.

2022 Portraits are 4'X4' mosaic, consisting of individually created 12"X12" panels in mostly acrylic. This year's inaugural project featured 12 powerful portraits, each containing 16 panels created by 11 local high schools. Every student participant was given a panel or two of the mosaic portrait to create their individual canvas. 

Participating high school's included: Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Hampton Bays, Rocky Point, Mount Sinai, Shelter Island, Riverhead, Southampton, Center Moriches, Eastport-South Manor, and Rocky Point.
