Creative Aging

Enhancing Well-Being Through Creativity

Whether it’s picking up a paintbrush or taking the opportunity to dance, we know that participating in the arts makes our lives healthier and richer. With this in mind, the UMFA is excited to launch a new series of community collaborations called Enhancing Well-Being Through Creativity. This initiative will bring arts enrichment to adults 55 and better via a generous grant from E.A. Michelson Philanthropy. The Museum is honored to join a distinguished cohort in their Vitality Arts Project for Museums. We’re working with community partners like the Utah Pride Center and Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company to bring new courses taught by professional artists to a variety of audiences. Here at the UMFA, we believe that art is for everyone and we’re excited to find new opportunities for learning, connection, and fun with older adults in our community.
