Albany-- Art is bringing Martin Luther King Junior's message to life. 61 works of art, painted by Dougherty County middle and high school students, are on display right now at Darton College.

It's part of the King Celebration 2003 "Children of the Dream" Art Competition. This painting, titled "We Shall Overcome" by Merry Acres Middle school student Conley Short, won a first prize.

Art Judge John Dimino says, "We choose works based on the ones that exemplify Dr. King's message of strength and determination like this work."

Dimino says this painting was a stand-out because it used King's message of determination in a broader way--in this case about our country's ability to overcome the September 11th terror attacks. The exhibit is on display at Darton College now through the end of the month.
