June 2019 Exhibit
Aging and Creativity: Artistic Inspirations by JCC Senior Adults

This must-see exhibit, for young and old alike, features paintings, photographs, prints, fiber arts, crafts and other imaginative works created by senior adults who attend the JCC Art Club for seniors. All clubs for seniors at the JCC are designed to foster personal growth and individualism, while giving participants a unique sense of purpose. They garden, exercise, reminisce and dance; then settle in to create unique works of art. In many cases, they work collaboratively, where no one artist is the star, each adding their own individual “signature” to create a masterpiece. A mentor from The Metropolitan Museum of Art makes monthly visits to spark creativity for everyone in the Club. The senior adults thrive in this program. As Kathy Greenlee, Assistant Secretary for Aging at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said: “Social and recreational activities, including creative and artistic ones, can help the brain resist decline while improving quality of health and life.’’ This show is living proof that it really works.

June 2 – 28 | Meet the Artists Reception: Sunday, June 2, 1-3 pm
