Artist Pete Fecteau has made a large mosaic of Martin Luther King Jr. from 4,242 Rubik’s cubes. The art piece has been on display at ArtPrize in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Notes about project (from publication “Dream Big“):

“Dream Big” was a year-long project in which Pete created a mosaic of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. using 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes. For a short time it was the world’s largest Rubik’s Cube mosaic. He created it with the help of YouCanDoTheRubiksCube, First Park Congregational Church, The Student Advancement Foundation and Cooley Law School. It taught the audience about creatively using art in traditional learning disciplines like math and history, diversity, social justice and learning disabilities. It was entered in the 2010 ArtPrize competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan and made it to the top 50 out of 1,700+ other submissions.
