Life Pittsburgh "Greens" Their Dining Room

LIFE (Living Independence For the Elderly) Pittsburgh, a non-profit organization that helps seniors remain in their own homes, eliminating the need for nursing home care, was proud to announce the unveiling of a new art project just in time for Earth Day.

Co-founders of The Art Diversity Project, Christine Bethea and Brenda Brown, were thrilled to work with the senior citizens from LIFE Pittsburgh. “The goal of this project was to take existing papers and salvaged materials to create something new," said Ms. Brown. The seniors created a colorful set of seven culinary themed panels that add a cheerful atmosphere to their dining room. The Greentree location of LIFE Pittsburgh was the site for the first of a series of senior art collaborations by Passports and Life Pittsburgh with other locations participating throughout the year. The art unveiling took place during the lunch hour with numerous staff, family, friends and corporate dignitaries present to witness the special occasion.
Founded in 1998, LIFE Pittsburgh has served over 600 seniors in Allegheny County and has assisted the vast majority of them with staying in the home they love while getting the care they need.
