CASEfest – Celebrating Art for Senior Engagement – will be held April 18-28 in venues across St. Louis. Now in its fourth year, CASEfest is the premier area-wide festival dedicated to art and seniors in the region.

More than 50 events, including lectures, art shows, performances, theater and classes will take place at dozens of venues during the 10-day event. CASEfest offers opportunities for senior involvement in the arts and encourages increased quality of life experiences.

Presented by the nonprofit Maturity and Its Muse, CASEfest will showcase creative work, promote arts-related aging programs and feature positive images of and for the senior community to build respect and understanding between generations.

From the Saint Louis Art Museum, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis and other area galleries to St. Louis County Library branches and more, events can be found for people of all abilities and interests, including intergenerational opportunities.

Among a host of events is a documentary screening April 20 at 2 p.m. at St. Louis County Library Headquarters, 1640 S. Lindbergh Blvd., featuring “Maturity and Its Muse: The Power of Aging Creatively.” A panel discussion follows, with an engaging group of notable St. Louisans including artist Sun Smith-Foret, one of the founders of the West End Word newspaper.

Events are continuously being added; find an up-to-date calendar online at maturityanditsmuse.org/calendar. The majority of events are free; however, a few may cost or ask for pre-registration.

CASEfest is sponsored by Maturity and Its Muse, a 501 (c)(3) not for profit organization that promotes positive, productive aging through the arts.
