Academy of Lifetime Learning Community Reception


Eastern Illinois University’s Academy of Lifetime Learning and Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Services are hosting a community reception open to all community members over the age of 50. The event will take place Friday, November 16 from 5:30 – 7 p.m. in Doudna Fine Arts Center Gallery Hall prior to the evening’s performance of STORMY WEATHER: The Lena Horne Project.

The Lena Horne Project stars Mary Wilson of the Supremes, which tells the story of Hollywood’s first African-American goddess. The living, breathing biography features rare audio clips, video footage, true stories and thrilling performances from Horne. Although this is a member’s only social event, you can register to become a member of the Academy and reserve your performance tickets.

The event will feature Hors d’Ouvres and drinks, as well as changes to receive discounts on tickets to the show, chances to win VIP, as well as discounted Academy of Lifetime Learning memberships. Register to attend the free event by October 22 through the Academy to be eligible to win those prizes.

Admission to the reception is free, but registering for the reception does not include admission to the performance. For more information about the reception or the Academy of Lifetime Learning, please contact Janna Overstreet, project coordinator, EIU School of Continuing Education at 217-581-5114 or academy@eiu.edu.

The Doudna Fine Arts Center is Eastern Illinois University's newest architectural landmark, designed by the internationally famous architect Antoine Predock. Predock is the winner of the 2006 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal for Lifetime Achievement and the 2007 Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum's Gold Medal for Lifetime Achievement in Design.

This newly renovated and greatly expanded facility boasts several public arts venues: The Theatre which seats 300, the Black Box studio theatre, the 600-seat Dvorak Concert Hall, the 180-seat Recital Hall, the 150-seat Lecture Hall, and several corridor art galleries. The Doudna Fine Arts Center also houses EIU's departments of Art, Music and Theatre Arts, and the office of the Dean of Arts & Humanities.

But the Doudna Fine Arts Center is more than a facility. It is a full array of arts programming and special offerings for area schools. It is new and emerging artists as well as classical and time-honored idioms. It is high-tech and roots. It is inspiration, enjoyment, edification, and service. Programming includes the New and Emerging Artists Series, other series and performances, lectures, exhibitions, and related events.
