Art is Ageless

What age do you have to be to start creating amazing works of art? At what age do you stop producing truly inspiring pieces? Encouraging older adults to take up the arts and express themselves is a long-standing tradition at Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America communities.

In 1981, PMMA featured resident art in the first Art is Ageless® calendar. The program was born out of PMMA’s desire to reaffirm “the agelessness of human creativity” and to actively demonstrate that “when it comes to human worth, it is the mind and spirit – not age – that counts.” The sentiments were expressed by former PMMA president, Rev. Thomas C. Wentz in the inaugural calendar.

Art lovers

An important aspect of Art is Ageless is the variety of artistic classes and programs offered at PMMA communities. Many communities bring in local professional artists to work with residents. Other classes are started by residents and employees.

Lawrence Presbyterian Manor partners with local arts groups to benefit not only our residents, but art lovers in the broader community. Art appreciation opportunities are scheduled frequently, with residents visiting local museums and participating in art classes on the manor campus.

Each year, Lawrence Presbyterian Manor hosts an exhibit and juried art competition through Art is Ageless. Lawrence's 2015 exhibit was in February. For exhibit forms and rules, visit
