Walk On Song Public Art Exhibit

October 25 - November 1, 2024
Nashville, TN

We all have a song which captures our spirit and inspires us to live our life courageously. Residents and staff members of LeadingAge TN member communities will share their song and why they chose it during powerful conversations this Spring. These discussions are designed to create deep and meaningful intergenerational insights. There are a number of fun and inspirational ways to hold these conversations. After the conversations are held, each community will select one dynamic duo to be featured in our photography exhibit. We will be scheduling a photo shoot for the pair and a questionnaire for them to fill out to share some information about themselves and their enriching relationship.

Once the final photos are selected, a graphic artist will be using sound wave and lyric filters to create one of a kind portraits to be featured in an experiential gallery exhibit in Downtown Nashville, just outside of Music City Center. The exhibit is designed to celebrate the intergenerational relationship between elders and staff and will be located outside the Music City Center in Jimmy Dickens Terrace and open to the public from Friday, October 25 - Thursday, November 1, 2024. We will hold a Ribbon cutting on Saturday, October 26 at 12:00 PM.  Reach out to Gwyn or Julie for participation information and to learn more!
