CelebratEArts Festival

An Annual Arts Festival Celebrating the Creative Works of Older New Yorkers 

Educational Alliance invites you to participate in our second annual CelebratEArts Festival throughout the month of May, to honor older adults who bring color, creativity, and compassion to our community through their varied artistic endeavors.

Launched in 2022, as part of the nation’s observance of Older Americans Month, led by the Administration for Community Living, CelebratEArts aims to dismantle ageism by celebrating the societal contributions of New Yorkers across their lifespan.

This year’s festival theme—Aging Unbound—offers us an opportunity to explore diverse aging experiences and to recognize how we all benefit when older adults remain engaged, independent, and included.

We are proud to showcase art from older adult members of the Weinberg Center for Balanced LivingSirovich Center for Balanced LivingCo-Op Village NORC, Project ORE, and the 14th Street Y. It will also include an online exhibition at MCCgallery.org.

Celebrate with us at the CelebratEArts Festival events listed below! If you attend 8 out of 11 events, then you’ll be eligible to enter a prize raffle at our Older Americans Month Closing Event on Wednesday, May 31st!
