Pop-Up Exhibit: Traditionally Unconventional - GRAIN
Thursday, February 8, 2018 - 11:00am to Thursday, February 22, 2018 - 1:00pm
Demetrius MensahThe Center for Retail Leadership and artist Demetrius Mensah have teamed up to bring a new Pop-Up Exhibit to Portland State University’s School of Business.

“Traditionally Unconventional | GRAIN” showcases inspiring stories of black pioneers and innovators, past and present. This exhibit highlights remarkable individuals who went against the grain with actions that have collectively influenced millions. 

Demetrius hopes that by sharing stories of people who saw opportunity in an  otherwise unopportunistic environment, visitors will be challenged to open their mind, see things in a new light, and walk away with a different understanding of innovation. 

  • “My aim is to inspire others to seek opportunity and find unique ways to pursue their full potential; by challenging the status quo, leaving the comfort zone and taking a risk- regardless of their circumstances. You don’t have to be great to start, you just have to start to be great.”

Location:
Karl Miller Center (Room 155)
