The University of the District of Columbia’s School of Mass Media, Visual & Performing Arts (MMVPA), presents a spectacular group show of artwork created by the talented senior citizens of the UDC Art Program. The inner visions and personal stories of the senior artists take many forms; this is an eclectic show of paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, and mixed media. The artists range in age from 70 to 83, and all share a passion for the visual arts. Through the
UDC Gerontology Program, these seniors have seized the chance to expand their horizons, and the art they have created is testament to the power of life-long searching, learning and expression.

The show runs 3/10/10 - 3/25/10. The opening and artists reception is on 3/10/10 from 5:30 – 8:00 PM. Come and enjoy the art and mingle with the extraordinary artists!

For questions regarding the show or to schedule an interview with the artists, please contact Professor Daniel Venne by phone 202-257-6041, or email dvenne@udc.edu. We look forward to seeing you at the opening of Ten Miles Uphill (Both Ways) Through the Snow With No Shoes.
