Monick-Isenberg Part of 55+ Drawing Course at Mia

MCAD Professor Emeritus Lynda Monick-Isenberg has helped instruct a 55+ art drawing course in conjunction with the Minneapolis Institute of Art over the summer.

The course, part of Mia's Vitality Arts program, worked on giving art workshops for adults age 55 and older. The project, a collaboration between the Catholic Charities Higher Ground shelter and Mia, ultimately culminated in the "55 and Better: Vitality Arts at Mia" exhibition.

“It's about believing that people 55 and over can learn something new, that every one of us can be inspired by something through the rest of our lives,” says Monick-Isenberg. “It's about believing in the older adults and their capabilities and their interests.”
