THE GOAL OF THE EXHIBITION

The goal of the exhibition is to demonstrate that creativity is neither limited nor defined by age, to showcase the vibrancy of this Shell Point Retirement Community with its robust amenities for residents to nurture their creative interests and help enrich their lives.

Genius can find new expression with age. The Ageless Creativity exhibition will be a way for Shell Point artists to feel newly inspired and appreciated, to continue to improve their art, and find opportunities to grow.
