A Conversation on The Creative Landscape of Aging



Philadelphia Art Alliance Presents:

“A Conversation on The Creative Landscape of Aging”

As part of The Philadelphia Art Alliance’s Centennial year programming, we proudly present “A Conversation on The Creative Landscape of Aging: Five Artists Share Their Thoughts and Experiences on Aging in the Arts”. This program serves as the first in a series of public conversations on contemporary craft and design in Philadelphia – as practiced by five well-known local artists and craftspeople who were interviewed for Judith Zausner’s recently published volume, The Creative Landscape of Aging.  In the book, Zausner presents compelling essays that explore the power and grace of creativity and aging from an intimate perspective. This conversation at the Art Alliance connects the artists with one another and with audiences who share an interest in life-long creativity.

Joining Zausner on June 10 will be: sculptor Richard Blake, ceramist Barbara Hanselman, knotmaster Ed Bing Lee and fiber artist Yvonne Bobrowicz. The panel will take place in the Shanis programming space at The Philadelphia Art Alliance on June 10 at 6:00 PM where artists and author will share more insights on their experiences both as craft artists aging in American society.  A brief Q & A session will follow.
