Acclaimed Memphis based, Nigerian-born artist Ephraim Urévbu, honors the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with a special tribute unveiling at Art Village Gallery, 410 S Main Street, on Friday, March 16, 2018 at 6:30 pm.  Art Village Gallery, in partnership with the National Civil Rights Museum’s MLK50 commemoration, will host the unveiling reception of Urévbu's original painting, titled E Pluribus Unum (Out of Many, One).  “Bringing people together is part of why Dr. King came to Memphis and sacrificed his life," said Urevbu.

"In a visual way, I tried to capture the meaning 'out of many, one'. The vibrant array of colors is a depiction of the diversity of nationalities of all who live here and the different cultures and religions that make up what America is today. If we celebrate that, focus on what makes us strong, then we rise as a nation. Then we fulfill Dr. King’s dream." The artist goes on to say, citing Dr. King's vision as his inspiration.
