CALA is pleased to announce the opening of the California Inspires! Expressions of Assisted Living Residents art show. The artwork by assisted living residents of CALA-member communities will be on display in the Eureka Room at the California state capitol building from August 19th through September 13th, 2013. The show is open to the public. If you are unable to travel to Sacramento, visit the virtual gallery to see all the pieces and learn more about each artist.
CALA sent out a call for artists earlier this year, and received an enthusiastic response from residents across the state. There are 93 pieces of art by 87 artists and one collaborative piece created by two Assisted Living communities. Each resident artist represented in this show has a unique life story and interpretation of what California signifies to them.
Recognizing the diverse talents and interests of the residents in CALA-member communities, we are delighted to display this amazing art from some of the communities we serve. We thank the residents who have graciously shared their artworks to be shown at the state capitol, and we urge viewers to remember: no matter our age, our lives are enriched by engaging in creative endeavors.
