The Chautauqua Annual Exhibition is one of the oldest continuously running juried shows in the country.

Smithsonian magazine has named Chautauqua, N.Y., as the No. 1 "Best Small Town to Visit in 2014" in the cover story of its April 2014 issue. The feature, by former New York Times "Frugal Traveler" columnist Susan Spano, cites Chautauqua Institution's mix of lectures, classes, recreational activities and fine, performing and literary arts programs as the basis for the distinction.

For three seasons now, curious Chautauquans have passed under prominent banners hung on the Colonnade and the Post Office Building.  Each banner displays a single word,  five in all: CIVIL, SUSTAINABLE, INNOVATIVE, INCLUSIVE, ENGAGED.

The following are remarks made by the Rev. Robert M. Franklin during a service at Hurlbut Memorial Church honoring Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday Jan. 20, 2014.
