The Geezer Gallery Corporate Sponsorship Program

The Geezer Gallery is dedicated to supporting older adults as they experience the challenges and opportunities of aging. Research shows that active participation in professional art programming improves quality of life and promotes physical, mental and emotional health, and social engagement.Therefore, we engage older adults in therapeutic arts programs to positively impact their health and quality of life. The following are examples of our stellar, evidence-based therapeutic arts programs that are designed to meet the goals of mastery and social engagement by stimulating imaginative thinking, problem-solving and creative expression:

Moment-To-Moment for patients with Alzheimer’s

Customized on-going weekly arts program for individuals with cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s type dementia that enables them to create and complete a unique art piece each week and provide them with a professionally bound portfolio at the end of the program.

 

Capturing Time: Journaling Your Journey

The unique curriculum that TGG developed to enhance older adults’ physical and mental health and increased socialization, by creating their own unique book of thoughts and/or remembrances about a meaningful experience in their life, learning and incorporating visual art and storytelling to express who they are and what they have experienced.

 

 

Program participants report less depression and apathy, less pain, increased social
engagement and self-esteem and perception of self-mastery during and following our programs.TGG’s corporate sponsorships fund the evidence-based programs that help us implement these programs.

The Geezer Gallery is a registered non-profit arts organization devoted to celebrating master-level senior artists. Proceeds from art sales help fund therapeutic art programs for seniors in our community. These creative programs are designed to enable brain-cell growth, dexterity, and opportunity for self-expression and foster social connections for at-risk seniors. The Geezer Gallery also creates intergenerational art where seniors and youth come together.
