In cooperation with the Islip Arts Council and the Islip Art Museum, AARP sponsored this NEW BEGINNINGS exhibition. This show features New York State artists between the ages 50-90+.
Creating this virtual exhibit was a trail-blazing event for all involved. The nearly 600 artists who submitted their work to be part of this event are to be commended for embracing the challenges of today's technology.
Curating an exhibition is a complex task and a work of art unto itself. Individual pieces must relate and be woven into a visually cohesive entity. The work selected needed to encompass New York State, and the ages 50-90+, as well as cover all levels of artistry from beginners to life-long artists.
After all this, videographer Waldo Cabrera used his artistry to create the groundbreaking exhibition video that appears above. Enjoy the show.
