A Labor of Love -
In November 2020 award-winning author Jose Larraga had an idea to develop a book featuring art created by seniors living in home care facilities. The idea quickly gained enthusiasm and acceptance by being welcomed by two key public entities, Master Dreamers Inc. and Moon Vows Inc., both recognized for their remarkable dedication of service in senior facilities and the community.
"With the partnership, our goal is to collaborate with creative staff, equipment, and financial support to collectively put together a most unique art publication honoring each of these remarkable seniors" explains the originator of the book, Jose Larraga. "We are very pleased with this perfect partnership to create and publish the book Hidden Art, giving all seniors living in these facilities a platform of their own to drive them towards the fulfillment of their dreams".
- Hidden memories turned into Hidden Art -
In the beginning of 2022, Hidden Art made history and became a reality by launching the first Call for Artists in April 2022. The response was immediately accepted and applauded by all the home care facilities.
By the month of June, more than 25 senior artists, from six different home care facilities submitted their artwork for the first book publication.
