Council on Aging Virtual Art Exhibit

Each year, the Cambridge Council on Aging (COA) offers art classes for seniors at the Citywide Senior Center in Central Square and the North Cambridge Senior Center. When City buildings closed in March 2020 to mitigate the effect of COVID-19, instructors Sally De Fazio (Citywide Senior Center) and Janet Hobbs (North Cambridge Senior Center) quickly adapted to continue teaching classes virtually. From their own homes and through guidance offered via Zoom, artists have continued to produce watercolor paintings, drawings, video animations, and artwork in other mediums.

The Council on Aging Virtual Art Exhibit celebrates the work of these artists and their dedication to creativity during the COVID-19 pandemic. If you would like to be put in touch with artists or instructors, learn more about COA art classes, or attend a virtual reception to honor the artists on Friday, June 26 at 6:00 pm, please contact Alicia Johnson at aliciaj@cambridgema.gov or (617) 349-6220.
