Rochester, N.Y. – Jewish Senior Life will host the LeadingAge’s 2014 Art Competition and Exhibit, featuring works created by seniors, the disabled, and the people who take care of them from all across the state.

Seventy pieces of art were chosen from over 300 submissions this year, the 23rd year of the Exhibit. The artists are residents of non-profit and public nursing homes and other care organizations, along with staff and volunteers. Twenty-seven residents of the Jewish Home of Rochester received awards for their artistic submissions, eight of which will be included in the traveling art exhibit. The Jewish Home is honoring these winners in a celebration on May 14th from 1:00-4:00pm. The LeadingAge Art Exhibit is free and open to the public at the Jewish Home of Rochester, 2021 Winton Road South, from 10 am to 3 pm, May 7 th through May 23rd, 2014.

“The Jewish Home is one of five locations across New York State to display the exhibit. The last time it was a traveling show was in 2010”, says Robert Whiteside, Creative Arts Therapist at the Jewish Home. The 2014 LeadingAge New York Art Exhibit is sponsored by Spring Line Design, East Greenbush, NY.
