For Another Maggie

“Old age is not a disease (…) it is strength and survivorship.” – Maggie Khun, founder of the Grey Panthers.

In May 2019 Wave Pool Artist in Residence Maggie Lawson will tap into the knowledge of Cincinnati’s elders to create intergenerational contemporary art. The project includes an installation and a series of public events addressing aging and agism. Lawson will be exploring what positive aging looks like within her own family and the broader Camp Washington community.

Lawson is collaborating with the University of Cincinnati printmaking students to print 400 birthday cards that contain positive messages about aging, completing a series of video portraits of older people that are example of healthy aging, and creating an interactive birthday scene.

Lawson will debut with a soft opening and community event in the gallery on Saturday, May 11th, from 6-9pm, light refreshments will be provided. The opening will coincide with Top of the Cycle, a group show opening in our upstairs gallery along with performances by the local bands.
