The Spirit is Ageless Art & Writing Contest continues to be one of CC Young’s most popular cultural events among residents and the public. This year, the contest saw 156 submissions in 14 categories. Each of the 156 submissions is on display in CC Young’s gallery at The Point through Friday, October 27, 2023. The show truly exemplifies the words, “The Spirit is Ageless,” by illustrating diverse perspectives in all mediums. The art submitted by these participants carries a unique perspective and depth, reflecting a lifetime of experiences and wisdom. These artists and writers challenge stereotypes and demonstrate that creativity knows no age boundaries.

“This annual show provides us an opportunity to celebrate ageless creativity and feature the talent and potential of all participants. It is such an honor to recognize the impressive works submitted not only by our CC Young residents, but also by Point Members, and the community at large. We are thrilled to welcome our friend and new partner, Dr. Laura Evans, as our featured speaker at this year’s celebration,” said Jennifer Griffin, CC Young vice president of Community Outreach & Engagement.  

The exhibition is free and open to the public.
