The MLK Gallery at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights
The MLK Gallery at the National Center for Civil and Human Rights in Atlanta is chapel-like space dedicated to Martin Luther King Jr.
The gallery is meant to foster quiet reflection as visitors read and contemplate Dr. King’s words.
Among the items that are part of the exhibit is King’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech, a number of his books and a draft of his “American Dream” speech. Also, on display is an incomplete copy of King’s “Beyond Vietnam” speech, given at the Riverside Church in 1967.
Designed by Rockwell Group and completed in collaboration with D&P Inc , the MLK gallery features rotating exhibits of personal papers, displayed in beautiful archival cases built by Zone Display Cases, alongside a projection of the phrase “I Have a Dream” in 25 different languages.
The specific design and fabrication approach for those display cases, as well as the assembly precision required by the client, presented an interesting challenge for our team.
