2014-10-15 North Central to Present The Scarlet Cord NORTH CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE
1515 Howard Street
Petoskey, MI 49770

NEWS RELEASE – October 16, 2014

NORTH CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE TO PRESENT
THE SCARLET CORD, ARTPRIZE 2014 HONOREE

North Central Michigan College is proud to be the host of the powerful exhibit, The Scarlet Cord, by artist Pamela Alderman, to our Petoskey campus October 27-29, 2014. The Scarlet Cord: Healing for Sex Trafficked Children reveals the deception that enslaves innocent children. As visitors step inside a storage container filled with 30 doors, they enter a secret world. This dark world crosses religious and socio-economic borders to sell children for sex. The twisting scarlet cord depicts the trauma bond that connects the children to their traffickers. The weathered doors represent these abused children whose youthful minds have become knotted. There are six mixed-media works of art – Tethered, Raped, Branded, Wounded, Stripped and Forced.

Alderman’s art—dedicated to these suffering children tethered within the sex industry—calls for compassionate action.

This exhibit was voted top 25 in the ARTPRIZE 2014 series. It was on display at the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum from September 24 through October 12. It will open in Petoskey at North Central Michigan College in the parking lot between the library and the admin classroom building on Monday, October 27.

Hours are Monday, October 27, 2 p.m. – 6 p.m., Tuesday, October 28, 9 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday, October 29 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Docents will be available for tours during this time.

Many thanks to an anonymous donor from Bay View for underwriting the exhibit, and Crooked Tree Arts Center, the Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan and the Zonta Club of Petoskey for their support. For more information, visit http://pamelaalderman.com/artprize/the-scarlet-cord/.

2014-09-26 North Central Presents Apollo 13 Astronaut Fred Haise NORTH CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE
1515 Howard Street
Petoskey, MI 49770

NEWS RELEASE – September 26, 2014

NORTH CENTRAL MICHIGAN COLLEGE PRESENTS
APOLLO 13 ASTRONAUT FRED HAISE

North Central Michigan College’s Lecture Series will feature Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise on Wednesday, October 29, at 7 p.m. in North Central’s Student and Community Resource Center gymnasium on the Petoskey campus. This lecture is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.

Fred Haise began his 20-year NASA career as an aeronautical research pilot, serving as backup crew for the Apollo 8, 11 and 16 missions and commander of the Space Shuttle Enterprise in 1977 for the Approach and Landing Program at Edwards Air Force Base. But Haise is most well known as a crew member on the ill-fated Apollo 13 lunar mission in 1970. Portrayed by actor Bill Paxton in the Apollo 13 movie, Haise was the lunar module pilot on the space mission.

In 1973, while flying an aircraft used in the filming of the Pearl Harbor movie Tora! Tora! Tora!, Haise was involved in an accident with a BT 13 aircraft that had been modified for the film. A fire erupted and Haise was burned over 65% of his body. It would take 14 months of recovery and rehabilitation before he could return to the skies to subsequently command the Space Shuttle Enterprise in the 1977 approach and landing tests.

Haise served as president of Northrop Grumman Technical Services and has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the NASA Distinguished Service Medal, among others. He has also been inducted into the Astronaut Hall of Fame.

Admission is free, but tickets are required.
Tickets are available at the North Central Michigan College Student Services office, fitness office and bookstore on the Petoskey campus and at the college’s Gaylord and Cheboygan offices.

For more information, call North Central Michigan College at 231-439-6218.
