Exhibition Dates: May 31-August 10, 2018 Opening Reception: June 2, 2018, 12 pm - 2 pm
In the summer of 2017, Artists Jessica Hankey and Erin Colleen Johnson, offered bilingual workshops in improvisation and performance to participants from three El Paso Senior Centers, including Pavo Real, Wellington Chew and Hilos de Plata Senior Center. In each workshop, seniors shared their life stories, sang, danced and acted, and in many ways became inspiring reminders of the core values of a living a robust and rich life. Footage from the workshops have been edited and will be displayed as a multimedia video installation to be exhibited at Stanlee & Gerald Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at UTEP. During the opening reception, we will have refreshments and entertainment from the senior participants, including the Super Seniors Line Dancing, Los Rancheritos Band and Grupo Amor Band.
