Vivian Lord, a professor of criminal justice and criminology, will present "Suicide by Cop: Current Research and Implications for Law Enforcement Officers and Agencies" at 5:00 PM on Tuesday, July 15, at the Belk Action Center at the Charlotte Chamber.
In this presentation, part of the UNC Charlotte Alumni Association Faculty Speaker Series, Lord will discuss real-world tactics that have been used successfully to resolve suicide-by-cop situations.
The cost is $5 per person, which includes the presentation and light refreshments. Registration is available online.
Works by three artists comprise "CHROMA: lyrical lines and compulsive color," which opens Saturday, July 12, at the Projective Eye Gallery in UNC Charlotte Center City.
The display will feature color-soaked abstraction in oil paintings by Linda Luise Brown, acrylics and collage works by Marge Loudon Moody and the intricate surface design on ceramic objects and installations by Greg Scott. One of the highest-selling genres, abstract art is often one of the most misunderstood, too.
An opening reception for "CHROMA" will be from 6:00 - 8:00 PM, July 12, and it will feature a performance by pianist Dan Knight and conversations with the artists. The exhibit will run through Wednesday, Sept. 24.
