About the Project

This collaborative mural project aims to highlight the positive and transformative aspects of aging while increasing the awareness of senior issues and the resources available to help.

Senior Connections and Genworth partnered with local artist, Colleen Phelon Hall, who designed the mural by taking inspiration from her surveys and interviews with more than 170 seniors in the community.

Colleen divided the mural into 5x5 foot panels that were painted at 11 multi-generational paint parties in the community. Over 500 people, ages 2 to 102, helped to paint the mural panels. The mural was installed October 22, 2017.
