Angels’ Wings is a holiday gift-giving program created to
provide gifts for more than 2,000 children, elderly, and physically/mentally
challenged people in the Indiana area. The program is coordinated at IUP by
the Office of Service Learning.
Tags can be picked up in several campus buildings November
18–22, 2019—just look for the evergreen tree and select a tag! By selecting a
tag from the angel tree, you can help provide holiday gifts to children or
adults in our community who otherwise wouldn’t receive one. Often, the adults
who receive the gifts are disabled, veterans, or elderly.
The tag will indicate the age and gender of the person, as well
as ideas of the gifts that have been wished for. While recipients were asked to
list what they’d like as gifts, you aren’t required to get all of the gift
ideas. The program’s main goal is to make sure that all recipients have at
least one present to open for the holidays.
Unwrapped gifts with the tag secured to the gift with tape can
be dropped off at the HUB Atrium at the Angel Tree table from 11:00 a.m. until
4:00 p.m. on December 2 and 3, 2019. Gifts can also
be dropped off in Pratt Hall 302 from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on December 2,
and from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. on December 3.

The Lively Arts
Throughout his career, the concept of synthesis has been central to Turri’s work. The source material for “The Longing Ritual” series is culled from cyclical
rituals: walking through Frick Park, the Homewood Cemetery, the neighborhoods of Squirrel Hill, and Point Breeze where he often records (through photography) the memorable visual moments that he experiences with regularity.
The paintings are not traditional landscape paintings; the work is meant to reflect the ever-pervasive presence of the screen and the digital device and its intrusion on the ability for real experience.

Fisher Auditorium, IUP Performing Arts Center
In 1996, an original rock musical by a little-known composer opened
on Broadway and forever changed the landscape of American theater. Two
decades later, Jonathan Larson’s Rent continues to speak loudly and
defiantly to audiences across generations and all over the world. And
now, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece returns to
the stage in a vibrant 20th anniversary touring production.
re-imagining of Puccini’s La Bohème, Rent follows an unforgettable year
in the lives of seven artists struggling to follow their dreams without
selling out. With its inspiring message of joy and hope in the face of
fear, this timeless celebration of friendship and creativity reminds us
to measure our lives with the only thing that truly matters love.
Get tickets here.
