Creative spirits shine: South Philadelphia Older Adult Center hosts Celebrate Arts & Aging reception

Bill Conallen

Last Thursday, the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA) hosted a memorable artists’ reception as part of the 22nd Annual Celebrate Arts & Aging exhibit. This event, held at the South Philadelphia Older Adult Center, brought together the community to honor the artistic talents of older adults, emphasizing PCA’s commitment to lifelong creativity and engagement.

The exhibit highlighted the vibrant works of many talented older artists, underlining the message that creating art is an ageless pursuit. Research has shown that participating in artistic activities can enhance cognitive functioning, reduce loneliness, and promote overall well-being among older adults.

The 22nd Annual Celebrate Arts & Aging exhibit is a testament to the enduring power of creativity in fostering community and enhancing the lives of older adults. The event not only celebrated art but also reinforced the idea that it is never too late to discover and pursue one’s passions.

PCA’s Celebrate Arts & Aging will host its closing reception at Center on the Hill this Thursday, May 30 at 4 p.m.
