LLI member Arzi McKeown, who coordinated the exhibition, notes that “viewers can walk among those who are offering their creative, expressive, and artistic reflections, and enjoy experiencing and sharing the unique interpretations of the world that are represented.” Sponsored by Bard College, the Lifetime Learning Institute provides opportunities for actively retired persons to share their love of learning in a setting that fosters the exchange of ideas and experiences. The Institute is affiliated with the Elderhostel Institute Network and offers noncredit, noncompetitive courses taught by volunteers on the Bard College campus. Classes are held during the spring and fall semesters and a January minisession. Special events include speakers programs, cultural trips, and moderated panels. In addition to study and discussion, members are encouraged to participate actively in all aspects of the operation of the Institute. Membership is open to all adults of retirement age residing in Dutchess, Ulster, and Columbia Counties of New York State.
