Sorry, we are no longer accepting registrations for this course. Please contact our office to find out if it will be rescheduled, or if alternative classes are available.
We all know of Burl Ives, the famed singer and actor born just south of Charleston in Jasper County, Il. Join us to hear stories from friends that knew him and his wife, Dorothy, and worked to get the Burl Ives Studio at EIU built. Why was it built by the Physical Plant staff? Why was the studio for visual artists named for a musical artist? Learn another side of this amazing personality who began his life in central Illinois. Parking available around studio with parking pass, or get visitor pass from EIU Police Dept., 7th and Grant.
