Last night, the Northfield School for Arts and Technology (ARTech) hosted Northfield area performing artists of all ages in a performance titled "The Arts for Martin" in honor of Martin Luther King. (Picture above L to R: Ben Harkins and Evan Larkin). A gallery created by visual artists from the area was also on display.
Former Northfielder and retired minister Fred Doty, who worked with King in the 1960s, told many stories of his civil rights experiences from that era.
ARTech student Nell Holden, who helped raise $500 from fellow students the past two weeks for the ARC Fishing Boat Project (see earlier post), raised another $500 at the event from parents and community members in attendance.
