SALISBURY — Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his meaningful work and progress as a civil rights leader, seventh- and eighth-grade art students at Salisbury Academy created two collaborative grid portraits of the historic figure.

One in color and one in black and white, the portraits are comprised of many small squares, sketched and colored individually by students.

Just as the combined dedication of many has the power to transform into far-reaching, positive change, the colored squares, when put together, created impactful and inspiring images of MLK.
