Video of my latest project!
This collaborative mural project aims to highlight the positive and transformative aspects of aging while increasing the awareness of senior issues and the resources available to help.
Senior Connections and Genworth partnered with local artist, Colleen Phelon Hall, who designed the mural by taking inspiration from her surveys and interviews with more than 170 seniors in the community.
Colleen divided the mural into 5x5 foot panels that were painted at 11 multi-generational paint parties in the community. Over 500 people, ages 2 to 102, helped to paint the mural panels. The mural was installed October 22, 2017.
For 23 years, Colleen Phelon Hall has been transforming the Ordinary into the Extraordinary. She creates artwork that causes a metamorphosis of a space, and sometimes even change an attitude. Colleen's recent work includes artwork that aims to raise awareness of important issues, like aging and the environment, by engaging the community. This work can engage the community in sparking discussions and sometimes including the community in the creation of the work.
Colleen's unique combination of artistic skill paired with her professional project management experience has allowed her to provide an amazing service - she helps bring her clients' dreams to life!
