Art is Ageless is a trademarked program of Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America, a faith-based not-for-profit organization with 17 senior living communities in Kansas and Missouri. Each community holds a juried art competition exclusively for people age 65 and older. Winning art pieces are chosen to appear in the annual calendar or on the covers of greeting cards. Programs and classes are held throughout the year to encourage seniors to express their creativity.
Art is Ageless began in 1981 when resident art was featured in a calendar. The competition is now open to all seniors in the area. Learn more about the program at ArtIsAgeless.org.
