Prime Time: To Be Above Ground
The legacy of aging artists is saved in a project emanating from New York City.
IF THERE’S ONE THING we know about aging artists, it’s this: They’re adaptable, and far from stuck—in their ways or in their styles. Joan Jefri, the director of the Research Center for Arts and Culture at THE LEGACY FUND at the Actors Fund did feld research and more than 200 interviews to collect information from senior artists in the New York area. They’re collected in the report Above Ground: Information on Artists III: Special Focus New York City Aging Artists.
