CH Senior Center News
The Cleveland Heights Office on Aging is excited to be partnering with University Circle Incorporated (UCI) to bring the world-class resources of University Circle to the Cleveland Heights Senior Activity Center (SAC).
Beginning in January, monthly lectures will be offered using video-conferencing technology. The lectures will be followed by trips designed to bring the lecture to life.
The inaugural program will be about artist Georgia O’Keefe, and will start with a lecture on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 11 a.m. Titled “The Evolution of Georgia O’Keefe,” the lecture, by the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, will provide a look at O’Keefe’s life, including her inspirations, setbacks and rise to fame. The subsequent trip, scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 29, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., will be to the Cleveland Art Museum for a guided tour of its Georgia O’Keefe: Living Modern exhibit.
Registration is limited to 15 people, and there will be a participation fee that will include the cost of transportation.
Anyone interested should plan to attend a Coffee and Conversation event with UCI at the senior center on Tuesday, Dec. 11, at 11 a.m., for an introduction to this new learning opportunity.
The Cleveland Heights SAC, located in the CH Community Center at 1 Monticello Blvd., offers a variety of programming for those 60 and older. A complete schedule of programs is published in the community center’s newsletter, and is available online at www.chparks.com.
