What a life in the arts will teach you

The Minneapolis Central Library is hosting a series of talks in February and March on the topic of aging. It's called "Age: Wide Angle" and the particular angle this line-up has to offer is firmly based in the arts.

Featured speakers include such local luminaries as dance activist Sage Cowles, MacPhail Center for Music CEO David O'Fallon, Actor Richard Ooms and choir director/composer Philip Brunelle. They'll each reflect on their lives and the lessons they've learned along the way.

In addition there are a few you might not think would make the "Age and Aging" guest list. Minneapolis Institute of Arts' youthful Director Kaywin Feldman will examine the quality of works created by artists in their later years. And still nimble James Sewell (of James Sewell Ballet) will reflect on "age in an ageless art form."

All talks will be held on Tuesday evenings at 7pm. You can find more details here.
