This project, undertaken by 10 students at Carnegie Mellon University, aims to provide a better understanding of the issues and needs of older visual artists. The report highlights the results in eight categories of services for aging artists: retirement, estate planning, housing, archiving, health care, insurance, business skills and legal services.
This study examines the situation and needs of aging visual artists in New York City, based on interviews with 213 artists between 62 and 97 years of age. The report contends that "artists, who have learned how to adapt their whole lives, have a great deal to offer as a model for society, especially as the workforce changes to accommodate multiple careers, and as baby boomers enter the retirement generation".
