Significant Love

Exhibition and Party




12 pm - 1:30 pm

Significant Love is a four month community arts project and public events series for residents at Surf Solomon Senior Center in Coney Island led by artist Julia Vallera during her BAC SPARC residency. Weekly workshops have helped seniors to create multi-media stories about things, people and places they love. At this culminating event, the books, artwork, portraits and digital media from the workshops will be on display. Participating seniors will be there to read from and discuss their books. 

SPARC is a collaboration among the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Department for the Aging and the City's five local arts councils situated in each borough – Brooklyn Arts Council, Bronx Council on the Arts, Council on the Arts and Humanities of Staten Island, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and Queens Council on the Arts. It was developed as part of Age-Friendly NYC, a citywide effort to make the City more livable for seniors, and previously ran in 2011-2012 after a successful pilot called Space for Art in 2009.  The 2012-2013 SPARC program is supported, in part, by public funds from the Department for the Aging.
