Homage to King

Xavier Medina

Xavier Medina, 1996
Sculpture
Plate steel
Cultural Legacy Initiative

This dramatic sculpture — a profile of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his arm outstretched — welcomes people to the King National Historic Site at the southwest corner of Boulevard and Freedom Parkway. It was commissioned by the Cultural Legacy Initiative, which brought major permanent public works of art to Atlanta from Barcelona — the 1992 Summer Olympic City — as an Olympic cultural exchange. Cut and rolled from plate steel, the sculpture is integrated with the bicycle and pedestrian path project linking the Georgia Institute of Technology to Freedom Parkway.
