The Celebrating Art for Senior Engagement Festival presents over 80 art-related projects and programs during the Festival, which runs April 20 – April 30, 2017. The local nonprofit Maturity and Its Muse, dedicated to improving the life of seniors through the arts, brings St. Louis 10 days of exhibits and art-related events to highlight how art improves the aging experience. This is the only area-wide festival dedicated to the St. Louis region's older adult population. From St. Louis Art Museum to area galleries, libraries, Laumeier Sculpture Park, Missouri Botanical Garden and more, arts events and programs can be found for people of all abilities.

The goal of Celebrating Art for Senior Engagement is twofold:

• To harness the power of the arts to energize and transform the quality of life for the region's older adults and

• To attract and help build audiences for the venues involved
