PCA’s 2017 Celebrate Arts & Aging

The 2017 Celebrate Arts & Aging signature artwork is "Autumn," by Yuk Yun Mark.

Special senior discounts are available this month for a number of institutions and performances as part of PCA’s 15th annual “Celebrate Arts and Aging,” among them: Philly Magic Gardens, Act II Playhouse and Philadelphia Chamber Music Society.

Three displays of senior artwork are on exhibit this month, and there are receptions where you can meet the artists at each venue.

You can also pick up the May issue of PCA’s Milestones newspaper, which features articles and full information about Celebrate Arts & Aging activities. Milestones is free and available in news boxes, libraries and other convenient sites throughout the city.

The celebration coincides with Older Americans Month. In addition to exhibits of senior artwork, it also provides seniors with the chance to experience the arts through classes and performances, and by connecting to the area’s many arts and cultural offerings at senior community centers, arts centers and other venues.

Celebrate Arts & Aging is presented by Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA); and sponsored by Always Best Care Senior Services, City Life Neighborhood Ministries, Neighborhood Clinics, Health Partners Plans, JEVS at Home and PECO.
