ART CART: Saving the Legacy - The Exhibition, Documenting artistic expression of 20th century artists over a lifetime for the broader community

Research Center for Arts and Culture

ART CART: SAVING THE LEGACY is an intergenerational arts legacy project that connects aging professional artists with teams of graduate students to undertake the preparation and preservation of their creative work, offering both groups an educational experience that will help shape the future of our cultural legacy (www.creativeaging.org/artcart). This exhibition is the culmination of a pilot project whose essence lies in the works themselves which are as varied as the artists, but also in the life stories, the experiential learning and the portrait of the older artist as a model for resilience, tenacity and a lifetime of meaningful work. As a 93-year-old artist interviewed in Above Ground said, “Art is what makes me live.”
