 EDITOR'S ADVISORY: SRU Summer Visual Arts Feature Photo Opportunity 



EDITOR’S ADVISORY                                                              7/16/03

The 12-day Summer Visual Arts Academy, hosted by Slippery Rock University, draws to a close on Friday [July 18] with a 3 p.m. public performance in Swope Music Hall showing off the skills and talents learned during the academy in jazz, theater, dance and writing – both poetry and prose. The program is designed to help students learn to integrate their visual and performing art skills with today’s state-of-the-art technology.

The academy, which offers high school students two college credits at the college or university of their choice, was open to students from throughout the western Pennsylvania region, including students from Pittsburgh.


Friday’s performance will offer outstanding feature photo opportunities – as well as interviews with some of the 112 participating high school students. The program is sponsored by SRU, the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, the Office of Social Equity, Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV, Regional Summer Schools of Excellence and the Grable Foundation of Pittsburgh.


The academy is under the direction of SRU’s Dr. Joseph McCarren, a professor of English. He may be reached at 724-738-2868 for those planning to staff Friday’s closing performance.
