Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at CSU, Chico
OLLI members and friends are welcome to join our summer arts trip to the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento to view the “Andy Warhol: Portraits” exhibit. A pre-trip lecture on June 7 by artist Dolores Mitchell will provide an introduction to the art of Andy Warhol in preparation for the Crocker’s special exhibition. On June 14, our bus will take the group to the Crocker. Andy Warhol’s lifelong fascination with celebrity and the art of portraiture is examined in this exhibition featuring 168 drawings, fashion sketches and paintings, photo-booth film strips, Polaroids, photographs, personal memorabilia and portrait paintings. For full details and a reservation form, download our flyer. There are only 20 seats left so be sure to sign up before the May 13 deadline!
We’re really excited about the upcoming summer term! We have a play festival, anthropology camp, theater club, energy conservation workshop, and bus trip to see the Andy Warhol: Portraits exhibit at the Crocker Art Museum. You’ll also see classes such as Travels in Africa, Create Your Own Cartoon Characters, and Facebook: What Am I Missing and is It for Me? And, of course, some OLLI favorites are back to round out your summer experience.
Join us on Wednesday, May 18 for the Summer Class Preview. Registration opens at 9am on Thursday, May 19.
New members can sign up for the summer term for just $60! Classes and activities, such as the Crocker Museum tour and some plays require an additional fee or ticket purchase. Details can be found on the class schedule.
Sprint to the Finish
This fall we set out to raise half of our $15k goal by the end of December, and save the money typically spent on a fundraising mailer. With your early donations, we made it happen! But we haven’t reached our annual goal yet….
Annual fundraising is a marathon. Please consider making a donation to get us across the finish line. If OLLI members contribute just $2 per class they are taking this spring, we’ll be there in no time! There are “Create a Brighter OLLI” donation boxes at Craig Hall, Chico New Thought Center, and the OLLI office. Just drop your bills or even spare change in the box and we’ll collect it each day. And, of course, you can still give online or by mail. Just use the buttons to the right. Thank you!

Without volunteer support, OLLI Chico could not provide the array of lifelong learning experiences members enjoy year-round. The Volunteer Connections Program is designed to keep OLLI programming sustainable by expanding volunteer participation.
