Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, AK

From Concept to Reality

An existing Park cement base was given new life through the re-facing of this cement base. The memorial needed to be restored and the portrait of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was HD laser etched into the granite to perfectly create the effect of reality.

Solid Black PG certified® granite tablets

A total of 3 Premium Black Granite panels, measuring respectivly 3’5”/2’10” (L)x 5’0”(D) x ¾”(H) polished face and sides, 3’3”/ 2’10” (L)x 4’0”(D) x ¾”(H) polished face and sides and 2’9”/1’7” (L)x 4’0”(D) x ¾”(H) polished face and sides, were assembled to create this beautiful memorial.

The memorial also includes a brick plaza, the bronze panels and a bust of Dr. King, all designed to inspire visitors to reflect on Dr. King’s message and mission. The signs tell the story of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s life with quotes and historical photos.  The placards are positioned on a concrete oval behind a statue of King that was part of the original monument.

This memorial dedicated on 06/20/12, in Anchorage, Alaska, will forever be a place where those who wish to pay homage to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and reflect on his messages.
