Gandhi, King, Ikeda Exhibit at City Hall
Bloomington, IN – Celebrating the lives of three of the 20th Century’s most influential champions for peace, Gandhi, King, Ikeda: A Legacy of Building Peace will be on exhibit in the atrium at the City Hall Showers building from November 16 – November 20, 2009. The exhibit, created by the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College to honor the lives of Mohandas K. Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Daisaku Ikeda, has toured throughout the world and is brought to Bloomington by the Indiana University SGI Buddhist Association and the Men of Color Leadership Conference.
Featuring picture panels highlighting the great achievements of these revolutionaries, viewers will witness the many similarities and differences among the figures. Five distinct sections of the exhibit provide a window into the lives of the men, describing their motivations, influences, and ability to inspire others. The exhibit highlights each man’s triumphs over adversity through peaceful resistance and the positive messages and changes their actions produced in global society.
Gandhi, King, Ikeda: A Legacy of Building Peace will be open for viewing from November 16th to November 20th, 2009, from 8:00am to 5:00pm in the atrium of City Hall, which is located in the main entrance of the Showers Building at 401 North Morton Street, Bloomington, Indiana. A closing reception will be held on November 20th from 5:30 to 7:00pm and will feature a proclamation from Mayor Mark Kruzan recognizing the accomplishments of these three visionaries.
