We Age

Created during Peter Bruun's tenure as founding director of Art on PurposeWe Age was held at The Park School of Baltimore in partnership with Baltimore County Department of Aging.

The exhibition featured three elements: works reflecting on childhood memories by participants in art workshops held at Baltimore County senior centers, art made during childhood by Park School faculty, and an installation about mortality by Allyn Massey called Embrace. As with many shows curated by Peter Bruun, We Age brought together conceptually challenging contemporary art with more populist community-made art.
