Creative Aging Network-NC (CAN-NC) will be blowing up the old-fashioned view of elders convalescing in rocking chairs through an exciting new art competition, exhibition, and auction titled “Rock On… the Aging Revolution!” The winning group will receive a catered brunch with dessert and chair massages at their site.
Aging service providers are invited to participate by using a standard rocking chair as a canvas for their “rocking artwork”. Materials such as paint, markers, fabric, paper and wood can be used to design and adorn their rocking chair. The chair should still be functional once the design is complete. A brief description of your creative theme and a list of those who helped make your rocking artwork should be included.
The participating sites will be asked to exhibit their finished rocking chair in a prominent location in their facility throughout the month of April. CAN-NC will provide a special container to be placed by each rocker to solicit votes through monetary donations. On May 1st the rocking chairs will be delivered to the Greensboro Cultural Center for a collective exhibition throughout the month of May. (Chair pick up by CAN-NC may be pre-arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org) A private reception will be held June 1st from 4:00 to 5:00pm followed by a public reception and silent auction from 5:00 to 7:00pm at the Cultural Center to raise funds to benefit Creative Aging Network-NC.
