UND, city to hold Martin Luther King Jr. Day program
The city of Grand Forks and UND will host a Martin Luther King Jr. Day program Monday morning.

New UND art collection set to open downtown
A new art collection will be available for viewing beginning Tuesday at the Empire Arts Center in downtown Grand Forks.
The UND Art Collections opening, "Fables, Insults, and Reverence: the Animals of UND Art Collections," will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Empire Arts Center.
This exhibition will give viewers the opportunity to see a selection of animal-centric works of art, a university release stated.
"From the chicken-people of Francisco Goya to the horses of Walter Piehl, a variety of insects, birds and mammals have come together to tell a tale of how they have each been employed by artists across centuries to illustrate stories, create allegory and demonstrate their relationships with humankind," the release stated.
The reception is free and open to the public. A gallery talk featuring UND Art Collections Manager and Curator Sarah Heitkamp will begin at 5 p.m.
The exhibit will run through March 31.
