Type of News: Press Releases

San Jose, May 17, 2017: Sourcewise is hosting “The Art of Aging,” a silent auction art show. The event celebrates Older Americans Month and will showcase the vibrancy and talent of Santa Clara County’s diverse senior population. Senior artists will display and sell their artwork; the event takes place at Sourcewise on Thursday, May 25, located at 2115 The Alameda, San Jose, CA, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Admission is free.

A growing demographic, Santa Clara County’s seniors are redefining aging by pursuing new interests, participating in the workforce, and engaging in their communities through volunteerism and the arts. This year’s Older Americans Month theme, “Age Out Loud,” was designed by the Administration on Community Living, which acknowledges, “Older adults are living their lives with boldness, confidence, and passion while serving as an inspiration to people of all ages.”

From the opening of Nbari Art in Los Gatos in the late 60’s to the creation of El Centro Cultural de la Gente in the 70’s in downtown San Jose, local artists have captured Santa Clara County’s rich culture. Today’s seniors are part of that bourgeoning art movement. With the Art of Aging Silent Auction, Sourcewise leadership seeks to honor these creative innovators.

“Santa Clara County seniors are talented! The pieces we have received exhibit the immense talent and skills of local artists. Attendees have a unique opportunity to own original artwork, while supporting seniors in our community. Sourcewise is proud to provide community members with a space to learn about, support, and recognize senior artists, while promoting cultural understanding,” said Manuel Altamirano, Chief Operating Officer at Sourcewise.
