The IU campuses observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day
on Jan. 20, and events to commemorate Black History Month may be accessed
at online campus events calendars throughout February. This painting
of King, by South African artist Ashley Ward, is located on the wall
west of the Tudor Room at the Indiana Memorial Union in Bloomington.
The IMU is home to a remarkable collection of art and antiques numbering
more than 1,200 pieces, and an initiative launched by the IUB chancellor
to increase multicultural artistic expression (see
article) on the Bloomington campus was announced last week. Directions
for a walking tour of the IMU are available at the director’s office
on the mezzanine.
