2 SHOREWOOD RESIDENTS WIN LIFETIME ART COMPETITION
Art will travel throughout Milwaukee in art show

MILWAUKEE (April 16, 2014)—Terry Kumakura, 64 and Jim Maki, 74, both won Interfaith’s Lifetime Art Competition this past March.

Kumakura won with her collage title “Memories”. Maki won with his piece “The House” created with pen and ink.

This past March marked the 27th year of Interfaith’s Lifetime Art Competition. Each year hundreds of older adults, ages 50 and above will enter original artwork into the competition.

Four professional artists from the local art community then judge the artwork. Twenty-five pieces, including Kumakura and Maki's were chosen as winners and to be a part of the Lifetime Art Competition art show. From April 25 to February 27, the artwork will be displayed for about a month at each of the 12 locations.

Entries for the competition came from many other local cities and counties. Artists from Shorewood, Mequon, Brookfield and Menominee Falls also participated and received a chance to display their art in the traveling art show. Some of the pieces will be available for purchase.

“The goal of the Lifetime Art Competition is to show the value in using the resources of our elders”, says Jean Schmitz, outreach coordinator of the Lifetime Art Competition. “Art enriches everybody’s life. The creativity and vibrancy elders give to the community is very valuable. They still contribute a lot to our society”.
