Elder Arts 2005

October 15, 2005November 9, 2005

Elder Arts 2005 features approximately 100 works of art from two programs of Eldergivers, an organization that fosters positive connections between elders and the wider community. Art with Elders places professional artists in long-term care facilities to offer residents an opportunity to explore their creative abilities in weekly painting classes and also exhibits in a variety of public locations the art produced in these classes. Elder Arts Celebrations exhibits the art of alumni, faculty, and students over the age of 65 from Bay Area art schools. Elder Arts Celebrations is a collaboration of Eldergivers, the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, and such institutions as City College of San Francisco, California College of the Arts, San Francisco State University, and San Francisco Art Institute.
