The arts, whether culinary, performing, or fine, represent a vital aspect of life, and in the Greendale, Wisconsin area, residents don’t have to look very far to see representations of each. From the Taste of Home test kitchens in Greendale, where visitors can sample delicious cookies and even take home the recipes, to Summerfest, the largest music festival in the world, to the iconic Milwaukee Art Museum sailing over the shore of Lake Michigan, art in all its forms abounds. This year on August 9th, residents and staff at Harbour Village in Greendale will go a step further, bringing an appreciation for the arts home by taking part in the Interfaith Lifetime Art Exhibit. This traveling exhibit, sponsored in part by the Helen Daniels Bader Fund and The Evan and Marion Helfaer Foundation, features the best work of artists ages 50 or better in Wisconsin and will spend the summer visiting various locations.
Katie Campbell, the Director of Resident Programming at Harbour Village, recognizes that the Interfaith Lifetime Art Exhibit is a “wonderful opportunity for our residents and the local community to enjoy some of the best artwork in Wisconsin right here in their very own backyard.” Its participation not only brings recognition to an overlooked population of artists, but it also encourages community members to become more involved in the arts. Harbour Village and the Interfaith Lifetime Art Exhibit join forces to celebrate the ages and unique talents of local artists. By applauding the creativity and energy of senior artists, they hope to embolden artists of all ages to be confident in their work and to share with their communities.
Harbour Village is honored to host the Interfaith Lifetime Art Exhibit! If you are in the neighborhood of Greendale on August 9th, be sure to stop by Harbour Village between 1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. to enjoy some of the finest artwork in Wisconsin! This wonderful exhibit proves without a doubt that art knows no age limit and that great art can often be found close to home.
