PCA’s 2012 “Celebrate Arts and Aging” Exhibits
Artists age 55 and over are invited to submit artwork for exhibit as part of the 2012 “Celebrate Arts and Aging” festivities during Older Americans Month in May. Presented by Philadelphia Corporation for Aging, and supported in part by PECO, “Celebrate Arts and Aging” highlights older adults’ artistic talents and creativity with events held throughout the city during May. In addition, it offers older adults a host of opportunities to connect to arts activities that month, including discounts for many arts performances, museums and other cultural venues.
This is the 10th year for the celebration. Senior artwork will be exhibited at four sites this year, including Center on the Hill…the place for active adults in Chestnut Hill; the Klein JCC in Northeast Philadelphia; Independence Visitors Center in Old City; and Philadelphia Senior Center in Center City.
Photo or slides of artwork, accompanied by an art submission form, should be sent to Amanda Buonomo, PCA special events manager, at PCA, 642 North Broad St., Phila., PA 19130 by Wednesday, March 28. Artwork must have been created during the past three years. There is a limit of one submission per applicant.
