Students host performance at Merced Multicultural Arts Center

Students from the Merced County Office of Education and the Merced Multicultural Arts Center's Enrichment Center will host a performance for family, friends and the community.

The performance is the culmination of the summer arts program, which includes MCOE's orthopedically handicapped and deaf and hard-of-hearing programs at the Enrichment Center.

The Enrichment Center is an arts-based adult day program for people with developmental disabilities held at the arts center. The Enrichment Center provides instruction in, and a forum for, the exploration of visual arts, theater, music and dance.

This year's theme is from Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" album.

The program is sponsored in part by VSA California, which helps make art accessible to people of all abilities.

The performance will be held at 10 a.m., July 1 in the main theater on the first floor at the Merced Multicultural Arts Center, 645 W. Main St.

On the third floor of the arts center, there will be activities for younger attendees beginning at 8:30 a.m.
