The Building Bridges: Breaking Barriers exhibition is a call for attention and an attempt to address the profound issue of ageism engrained in our society. The pandemic era has not only helped unmask, but negatively fueled the already existing ageist sentiment, promoting the troubling narrative about the value of older adults in our society. Drawing artists from a range of disciplines, the exhibition reveals that curiosity, unbound imagination, and inventiveness are defining characteristics that only come with age. This exhibition is presented by Ruth’s Table, an arts nonprofit committed to increasing access to creative opportunities for older adults and adults with disabilities, providing an inclusive and inspiring environment for creative expression and intergenerational connections. It is curated by Hanna Regev.
