Building on the success of 2020’s Art@50+: New Beginnings, Islip Arts and AARP Long Island are pleased to announce a new statewide virtual art exhibit embracing the theme Forever Young.
As part of AARP’s effort to disrupt aging by dispelling negative stereotypes and bias toward aging, this exhibit asks New York-based artists 50 or older to submit pieces that symbolize their vision and ideas on staying Forever Young. Selected artists will be featured in a virtual exhibition sponsored by AARP and shown on the Islip Art Museum website in July and August.
Entry to Forever Young is open to residents of New York State. Artists can begin the submission process on May 1. Download prospectus (see above link) for information and submission requirements.
Previously exhibited work is excluded. Artists will be asked to provide a maximum 80-word written statement about their work, as well as a 30-second audio recording of their statement.
