How does an artist's creative process change over a lifetime? And how does one's physical aging process impact the creative process? The panel includes Trevor Carlson, MCDC Executive Director; David Vaughn, MCDC Archivist; Christine Bratton, MCDC Physical Therapist; UM Professor Nicholas Delbanco who tackles the enigma of “Lastingness” over a creative life in his new book of the same title; and medical representatives from the University of Michigan Health System, who will address the physical changes inherent in the aging process.

This program is cosponsored by the UM Department of English, UMHS Creative Campus Initiative, the Museum of Art, and UMS. It is one in a series of educational programs offered in conjunction with the UMS presentation of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company Feb 18-19. For more information, please visit
