The Jewish Association on Aging Hosts Virtual Art Gallery Show
"Opening Minds Through Art" Program Gets Its Own Permanent Gallery Collection
The Jewish Association on Aging (JAA) is hosting a virtual art gallery show celebrating Opening Minds Through Art (OMA) resident artists who have been engaged with art making as part of JAA’s memory care services.
Throughout the pandemic, OMA provided JAA’s AHAVA Memory Care residents with a way to express themselves and explore their creativity.
The virtual gallery show will be held on Wednesday, April 14 beginning at 6:30 PM. Guests who register receive a Zoom link for the event and have the first opportunity to see JAA’s new permanent collection of OMA artworks, past and present, prior to the public.
The event features guest speakers and a demonstration of an OMA project with which attendees can follow along and chat about from home, followed by a Q&A session.
The event is free and open to all.
