MIAMI – A photography exhibit inspired by the 2014 #BlackLivesMatter demonstrations in South Florida is on display at the historic Ward Rooming House in Overtown.

The "No More Blues" exhibit was created by Haitian-American photographer Cendino Teme, and depicts images from the Interstate 95 peaceful protest that took place in December 2014 during Art Basel.

"The visual arts is often a medium used for social awareness and change. As an artist I feel like it is my obligation to do as those that came before me. Such as the first black photographer, Gordon Parks did during the civil rights movement, as will I give voice to the people through my artistry," said Temé . "The exhibition, "No More Blues" exhibition seeks to bring the social issues of police brutally and the inherent bias of the justice system to the forefront with a imagery from the BlackLivesMatter movement in South Florida."

The exhibit will run through December and admission is free.

The Ward Rooming House is located at 249 NW Ninth St.

Hours of operation are Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
