That’s the goal of Creative 360, a not-for-profit community arts and wellness organization in Midland, Michigan.
This past year, the art gallery displayed the work of so many talented artists — including our very own Independence Village of Midland residents!
“This art exhibition is something we have been working on for several months and we are so excited our residents have the opportunity to showcase their artwork in such an amazing fashion!” said Katie Wesolek, Life Enrichment Director at Independence Village of Midland.
These artistic residents range in age from the late 60s to 100 years old. Some of the artists have been creating all of their lives, while some are newer to the field of visual arts. What do they all have in common? They were honored to share their artistic talents with visitors at the showcase.
One resident and artist, Mary (also known as “Tooney” to her friends), has always loved two things — sewing and bright colors. She is a talented quilter, and this upcoming showcase is the first time her work will be featured in an art show.
James’ woodworking skills are like no other. His father had a shop in Bridge Port, Connecticut, where he learned to use tools and increased his abilities.
Though he’s too humble to call his work “art” himself, we can all see the beauty and talent shown in his pieces
And those are just a few of the residents who were featured in the exhibit. Each resident holds unique talents, and we were honored that they chose to share them with us.
