> DESCRIPTION

When I’m Sixty Four explores the lives of our country’s plus 50 population. In California alone it is projected that the population over the age of 65 will rise to 6.5 million in the first two decades of the new millennium. All aspects of life will be impacted from politics, public services, the economy, family structures, and healthcare. As our population ages we have to ask ourselves the role this group will play in our culture and whether or not our perception, acceptance and politics will mature along with them. The contemporary artists in When I’m Sixty Four use diverse approaches to explore the realities of the lives of our elderly, often through extremely private investigations into their own aging or the lives of their loved ones. Their work will pose questions about our concepts of aging, and what we can all do to access our older and wiser community members.

Artists include Troy Aossey (AZ), Jeanne C. Finley (CA), Gina Genis (CA), Jessica Ingram (CA), Nancy Macko (CA), Peter Riesett (NY), Shari Wasson (CA), and Martha Wilson (NY).

The Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art and the Chaffey College Gerontology Program, part of the School of Health Sciences at Chaffey College, are presenting an in-depth schedule of public programs, lectures, film screenings, an all-ages community art festival, and special performances featuring the amazing seniors in our communities.
