Resident artists of Seashore Gardens Living Center and student volunteers from Stockton University are proud to share their art in the inaugural Virtual OMA Art Show. The show features artwork that was created during the year.
OMA is a Scripps Gerontology Center intergenerational art program for people with dementia that is aimed at promoting their social engagement, autonomy and dignity through the experience of creative self-expression.
The program is conducted by Seashore Gardens Living Center.
We are grateful for the generous support from Legacy Heritage Fund that has enabled us to provide intergenerational programming for our senior residents.

Seashore Gardens Living Center was fortunate to receive a three-year grant for two innovative intergenerational dementia programs, Music and Memories and Opening Minds Through Arts. During the first two sessions of our Opening Minds Through Art program, our residents and Stockton University Students created several amazing pieces of art. When the pandemic forced us to curtail group activities and ultimately cancel our scheduled Art Show, we decided to do a virtual show and create boxed notecard sets that everyone could use and enjoy. The art work showcases the creativity of our resident artists and shows the scope of the different lessons that they enjoyed.
With a $15.00 donation you will receive a set of ten original design cards and envelopes. There are 20 different works of art created by the Dementia Residents of Seashore Gardens Living Center and are two different sets. They make for a great holiday gift and the proceeds will enable us to continue this vital and much-loved intergenerational programs at Seashore Gardens Living Center when the grant funds end.
