Jeffri's Study of Older Artists Leads to NYC Arts Program

A study last year by Joan Jeffri, Director of Arts Administration and the Research Center for Arts and Culture, found that aging visual artists have larger social networks, more intergenerational contacts, and higher life satisfaction scores than other older adults. The study sparked a New York City program to place visual artists in studio spaces at targeted senior centers throughout the city's five boroughs.
