Be Part of an Intergenerational Photo & Story Project

Madison, WI – Members of the public are invited to participate in the Madison Public Library and Madison Senior Center’s first-ever joint intergenerational photo exhibit.

Attend one of two photo sessions to have a picture taken by Jennifer Bastian, Madison Public Library’s Bubbler Artist-in-Residence. At least one person over the age of 55 must be included with anyone belonging to another generation. Friends, relatives, complete strangers – anything is possible! Bring a group and get creative. Local author Pam Phillips Olson will be available to record stories, if participants would like to include one with their photograph.

Photos and stories captured during these sessions will be displayed at Central Library and the Madison Senior Center throughout the month of December. A welcome reception will launch the exhibit.

Call the Senior Center at 608-266-6851 to schedule to have your photo taken at one the following photo sessions being held at Central Library:

Saturday, August 26

Thursday, September 28

Walk-ins are welcome, but those who make a reservation are guaranteed submission.
