Free Library Celebrates Older Americans Month

By Alix G. RSS Fri, April 29, 2011

The Free Library is proud to be a part of the “Celebrate Arts and Aging” festival (beginning May 1), organized by the Philadelphia Corporation for the Aging in honor of Older Americans Month. Beginning May 2 and running through the end of the month, Parkway Central Library’s West Gallery will feature an exhibition of 47 pieces by professional artists as well as those who took up art in their senior years.

In addition, on Wednesday, May 4, at 5:00 p.m., the public is invited to Parkway Central for an artists' reception, which will be followed at 6:00 p.m. by “Creative Conversations,” a panel discussion highlighting aging and creativity.

“Celebrate Arts and Aging” is a month-long, citywide festival that showcases the talent and creativity of older Philadelphians in three exhibits and connects seniors to a myriad of arts-related activities in the visual arts, music, dancing, crafts, drama, poetry, fashion, and more.
