MLK paintings move to new location at ASU Polytechnic campus

January 13, 2014

The commissioned Martin Luther King Jr. paintings from 2012 MLK Servant-Leadership Award recipients Rev. Jenny Norton and Bob Ramsey will be moved from their current location at ASU Gammage on the Tempe campus to a new home at the Polytechnic campus library.

The paintings were gifted to Norton and Ramsey from their friend and world-renowned painter, Peter Max, who is best known for his use of psychedelic color palettes.  

MLK Jr. Committee leader Colleen Jennings-Roggensack organized the move to spread the enjoyment across all four campuses. As such, each will take turns hosting them for a year, beginning with the Polytechnic campus. The paintings will transfer to the West campus in 2015 and then the Downtown campus in 2016. They will return to the Tempe campus in 2017.

The Polytechnic Library is located in the bottom floor of the Center Building (5988 S. Backus Mall, Mesa, AZ 85212).
