Autumn Leaves: Give Corps Campaign

Autumn Leaves is about nothing less than the meaning of life, recognizing the deeper connectivity of our lives, and the importance of collectively gathering from time to time for no other reason than commemorating who we are, as individuals and as a community. It provides a novel, intergenerational artistic platform, establishing a new kind of community arts experience in which those younger than 50 pay tribute to those 50 or older—in appreciation of their life wisdom.

This art exhibition will have 7 major events at Area 405 running from September 19 through November 2, 2014, each highlighting an autumn group. Exhibitng the "leaves" portraits, events focus on subject's reflections to 3 questions:
