IUPUC invites you to take part in ELI presentation

Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC) has announced the latest speaker to take part in the school’s “Excellence in Leadership Initiative.” School officials says that Haitian-American photographer Cendino Temé will make a presentation on Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 4 p.m. in Room 1000 of The Columbus Learning Center.

IUPUC officials say that the presentation will include an artist address and exhibition of his work titled “No More Blues.” Temé says the collection was inspired by the experiences of black youth who participated in the December 2014 peaceful protests held during the Art Basel event in Miami. He says that the protest was in response to police brutality and the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, Israel Hernandez and others.

IUPUC officials say that this presentation, like all that are part of the Excellence in Leadership Series, is free and open to the public.
