About the Exhibition

The project was conceived in lockdown and inspired by the senior residents of Serviam Heights, Towers and Gardens' arts and crafts group. In the face of the pandemic, the seniors continued to make, exchange and care for each other with art.

 

We supported the seniors with arts materials drops, activity packs and mail art. Then expanded this approach to neighborhood families and youth with virtual art classes and outdoor programming.

 

The exhibition reveals the friendships of neighbors and gives space to young people's hopes for a secure and empowering future beyond the pandemic.

Look at this, I'm healing, launched on November 12, 2020 as part of our annual fundraiser event Art on the Concourse: A Virtual Block Party celebrating 40 years of Fordham Bedford in 2020.
