CELEBRATE NATIONAL HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH – CUBAN STYLE


 In celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, Ascension Lutheran Church is proud to offer a compelling presentation on modern-day Cuba by photographic artist and author Dawn Currie. The talk is open to the public and will be given on two occasions – Sunday, September 16th at 3 PM and Tuesday, October 9th at 7 PM. It will take place in the Fellowship Hall at Ascension Lutheran Church located at 1053 Pinetree Dr, Indian Harbour Beach, FL 32937.
            Come see images that stir the mind and hear stories that touch the soul. These are the fruits of a physically and mentally challenging two-week trek by the author and artist that spans the island from east to west. Dawn brought school and clinic supplies and left enriched with memories to last a lifetime. Leave your preconceptions behind. Dawn had unprecedented and unhindered access across the entire island that allowed her to capture daily life in words and images.  Share a glimpse of life in Cuba where time stands still, yet takes its toll.
            The presenter, Dawn Currie, exhibits extensively across the U.S. and has won multiple awards. Through her images, Dawn strives to capture the beauty and moments that enrich our daily lives, wherever life my take us. Most of us go through life rushing from one place to the next, mesmerized by electronic gadgets and not really seeing our world and all its riches. Her passion is to reveal the unexpected, to draw the viewer in, and to share what others rush by.
