The six women have been taking advantage of a program that allows Missouri residents age 65 and older to enroll in undergraduate credit courses on an audit, space-available basis. The senior artists work alongside degree-seeking students and have access to the same supplies and equipment. Some of their work, along with pieces by Sippel and Bangert, is on display through Friday in Gallery FAB at the Fine Arts Building as part of an exhibition titled “Senior Express.” The title of the exhibition was taken from the name of the form the senior students filled out at the beginning of the semester.
