How to respond to an invitation to present a month long exhibit in the lobby of the United Nations/Opening Event on the International Day of Older Persons to tell the story of the goals of the NGO Committee on Aging on an international stage.
We created “Ageless” – an exhibit that was designed to communicate and tell the story of the spirit of creativity and hope in later years. Based on a program we developed to feature the art of older persons, who, like Grandma Moses, took up painting later in life, the exhibit featured art by individuals who took up painting as older adults. Their work, accompanied by their portraits, spoke to the intention of keeping the lives of older adults visible and valued on the international stage.
