Eco-art is attractive to seniors as well

Many think that exhibitions of eco-art in which you can see works of art produced from re-purposed, recycled or reused materials are a topic interesting only for the youths. While seniors are supposed to be more accepting of the traditional forms of art – painting or sculpture. This stereotype was completely destroyed in Telšiai, Lithuania, where seniors made up the biggest part of the visitors to the one day exhibition of eco-art.

„It was completely opposite than our exhibition in Vilnius, where the majority of the visitors where youngsters. We were pleasantly surprised by how bright and informed about environmental affairs these seniors were“, says one of the organizers of the exhibition Martynas Norbutas.
