Be Part of an Intergenerational Photo Project

Bastian Intergenerational Photo Project

here Who Matters? Be part of an intergenerational photo & story project.

You 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 (dates below) to have your picture taken by Jennifer Bastian, Madison Public Library’s Bubbler Artist-in-Residence. You must include at least one person over the age of 55 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 capture your stories, if you’d like to include one with your 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. 

All participants will receive a free copy of their photo!

Call the Senior Center at 608-266-6581 to schedule to have your photo taken at one the following photo sessions being held at Central Library:

Saturday, August 26, 10:00am-2:00pm
Thursday, September 28, 4:00-8:00pm

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