MOUNT HOPE - Students at a Mount Hope middle school are honoring Martin Luther King Jr. through art.

The students at M.S. 117 put together a three-dimensional representation of the principles King stood for. The top of the installation bears his initials and images of his face, as well as excerpts from his notable speeches.

The base displays his six principles of nonviolence and an action plan for how to carry them out.

The project comes after an open call from the New York State Department of Education to create artwork honoring King. It took six weeks to assemble.
