Art created by older Philadelphians will be on display throughout the month of May at special exhibits throughout the city. Presented by the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA), “Celebrate Arts & Aging” will provide access to free art exhibits at five locations in Philadelphia: City Hall, the Gershman Y, the West Philadelphia Senior Center, Center on the Hill, and the Philadelphia Senior Center. All art has been produced by older adults and is free to view. As part of this initiative, seniors can also access special discounts to theatres and concerts, as well as art, drama, dance and other classes. For more information, visit PCA’s website.
