The Jewish Association on Aging will host a virtual art show celebrating Opening Minds Through Art, a Scripps intergenerational program that engages resident artists as part of JAA’s memory care services.

During the pandemic, Opening Minds Through Art has provided JAA’s AHAVA Memory Care residents “with a way to express themselves and explore their creativity,” according to a JAA press release.

The virtual gallery show will be held on Wednesday, April 14, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Guests who register receive a Zoom link for the event and have the first opportunity to see JAA’s new permanent collection of Opening Minds Through Art pieces.

The event features guest speakers — including Liz Powell, JAA’s arts education coordinator — as well as a live demonstration of an art project in which attendees can participate.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information and to register, go to jaapgh.networkforgood.com/events/27546. PJC
