First Friday Lecture The Art of Aging by Janet Shaw-Russell at MAWA

  • MAWA 611 Main Street Winnipeg Canada (map)

After reading The Art of Aging: a Celebration of Old Age in Western Art, Janet Shaw-Russell had questions. Out of the 114 art illustrations, why were only three created by women artists? Who are contemporary female artists that choose aging as their subject matter? How do they portray the place of the elderly in society? Can we embrace aging through art? Shaw-Russell will discuss The Art of Aging and her research on the subject. More info here.
