Artists Return to U City High School This Week

Participants include Sallie DuMaine and Darwin Harris.

Today marks the first day of the 2012 University City Municipal Commission on Arts and Letters Returning Artists Program.

This year's featured artists are Sallie DuMaine and Darwin Harris.

The annual Returning Artists Program, held since 1994, features artistically renowned (UCHS) graduates who return to share their fields of creative work with University City’s current students. The program’s activities will take place in schools around the city. Middle and elementary schools, both public and private, as well as UCHS will be included in this year’s program.

UCALC sees the program as a chance to enrich the University City schools’ art programs and to encourage students to consider careers in the arts.

DuMaine, UCHS Class of 1981, is a writer and musician, nominated in last year’s Kevin Kline award for her musical direction in “Pump Boys and Dinettes” at the Bear Stage.

Harris, UCHS Class of 1991, pursues acting in Los Angeles where he has appeared in commercials, television and films. Previously he worked in television and stage productions out of Chicago.

Returning artists in past programs have included visual artists, glassblowers, photographers, writers, filmmakers, graphic designers, videographers, animators, instrumental musicians, composers, actors, singers and dancers.

Funding for the Returning Artists Program is provided by the and the Darwin Portman Fund.
