Celebrate Arts and Aging
Now through Tue, May 31, 2022 5:00 P.M.
First Floor Gallery West
Parkway Central Library
Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA) is holding its 20th annual Celebrate Arts and Aging (CAA) exhibition of artwork by artists over 55 years of age. The event features 125 paintings, drawings, prints, and photography pieces that have been created by older adults, highlighting the fact that this can be a period of immense growth and productivity.
This year’s CAA is a hybrid event, offering an in-person connection as well as the opportunity to reach a larger audience. Pieces are on display for public viewing at Parkway Central Library as well as the Center on the Hill in Chestnut Hill. In addition, the full collection has been compiled into a virtual show available online via PCA’s website www.pcaCares.org/celebrate and social media vehicles in conjunction with Older Americans Month.
An opening reception will be held on May 6 at the Parkway Center Library from 1:30 to 2:30 PM in the Heim Center. A closing reception will be held May 26 at Center on the Hill from 4:00 to 5:00 PM.
The exhibit, located in West Gallery 1, is open and free to the public during normal operating hours of Parkway Central Library.
