‘Life on the Back Nine’
A Portrait Exhibition Showcases Barrington Area’s Vibrant Older Adults
Barrington Cultural Arts Center (BCAC) in conjunction with the Barrington Area Council On Aging (BACOA) has produced an event celebrating Barrington area’s vibrant older adults. Ten local Seniors were recruited by BACOA and BCAC to share their interesting life stories and to pose for individual portraits created by BCAC artists. The result is a month-long exhibit entitled ‘Life on the Back Nine’. A year in the making, the exhibition features over 40 portraits by 18 local artists, with accompanying biographies for each Senior.
Join neighbors at the opening reception on Friday June 1, 2018 at The Garlands of Barrington, 1000 Garlands Lane, Barrington, Illinois, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. The Exhibit may be accessed through the outside Performing Arts Center doors the night of the reception. On following dates please enter through the Main Entrance. The Portrait Exhibition runs June 1 – June 28, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The reception and exhibit are Free to the public.
