Upcoming SAGE Lecture asks 'Why Art?'
Ann Lalik, gallery director and art coordinator at Penn State Lehigh Valley, will be the featured presenter for the next SAGE (Senior Adults Gaining Enrichment) lecture. Lalik will present "Why Art?," a discussion and tour of newly-integrated arts programs at Penn State Lehigh Valley at 10:30 a.m. on March 4 at the campus in Center Valley.
During her presentation, Lalik, who is the former Executive Director of the Baum School of Art in Allentown, will speak about the dawn of art programs at Penn State Lehigh Valley, integrating art into campus culture, and the work that took the Penn State Lehigh Art Gallery from prospect to reality. The lecture will be followed by a tour of the new art gallery and a reception lunch.
Each SAGE session begins with coffee at 10:30 a.m., the featured speaker at 11 a.m., and lunch at noon. The cost of the lecture, including lunch, is $15, and will be held at the campus in Center Valley, 2809 Saucon Valley Rd., Center Valley, Pa., 18034.
The event is open to adults age 55 and over, but reservations are required. Reserve a space by February 28 by contacting the Registrar's office at 610-285-5059.
