The 100 Words Of Wisdom Exhibit is the brainchild of artists Evan Bishop and Katori Walker. Together with fellow artists Lance Johnson and Barry Mason, they embarked on a journey that captured the wisdom of over 100 senior citizens from all walks of life. Meet the team.
This community-based art project involved 141 participants whose ages range from 60 to 102. They reside in Yonkers as well as 12 other municipalities in Westchester County, all five boroughs in New York City, New Jersey and Massachusetts. They are immigrants, politicians, musicians, artists, poets, authors, healthcare providers, educators, civil servants and business professionals. With all of these differences, the common denominator is their willingness to share their wisdom with the youth of today.
We are pleased to announce that the exhibit will be displayed for two months at the Equipoise Gallery. While there, we will host programs that engage the community. Join us on December 2nd for our Opening Reception. Click here for gallery info.
