Three new paintings by Black artists were unveiled in the Indiana Memorial Union on November 28 as part of an initiative to expand the IMU’s art collection with contemporary works more representative of IU’s population.  

The new paintings include “Glorious Day” by India Cruse-Griffin, which is displayed in the South Lounge, “Reasons” by Kyng-Rhodes, displayed across from the dining area and “Empowered Tresses” by Tasha Beckwith, displayed outside of the Georgian Room.

In 2020, members of the Union Board, IU Student Government, the campus art curation staff and the IMU director were tasked with examining the effectiveness of the IMU’s art according to a News at IU press release. The goal was to determine how the IMU’s art serves students and reflects diversity and how the IMU can better represent students and communities with art.

Interior Designers George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg Take a Heartfelt Approach to Collecting Art

One afternoon last fall, while en route to their Tribeca office, George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg stopped by the gallery 125 Newbury. The life partners were drawn by the gallery’s Peter Hujar exhibition “Echoes,” featuring images of queer life in New York City spanning from the Stonewall riots in the 1970s and through the AIDS crisis in the ’80s. At first unfamiliar with the artist, the two quickly became avid collectors and advocates of his work.

“That period is very interesting,” Yabu told Artsy from their home in Toronto. “I just want to emphasize that the New York life in the West—the piers and the gay [community], the pact with the local police that they don’t touch them if they’re having assignations on the piers—and it was very a dangerous time…it was a very unique time that was documented by the ‘Peters’ of the world.”
