2016 Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Bash

2016 MLK Birthday
Monday, January 18, 2016
Mattress Factory 
Give What You Can Admission (Donations Appreciated)

In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and his visionary spirit, the Mattress Factory is opening up our doors to everyone on MLK Day! We want to share some birthday cake and celebrate the life of this admired historic figure. Use this as an excuse to check out our installations, participate in some hands-on workshops and answer "what's missing in the world?" by participating in an interactive embroidery project with artist William Chambers.
