An art show featuring the works of about two dozen older artists helped beautify the main lobby of Fordham’s Westchester campus in June.

“Matters of the HeART: Supporting Creative Aging Through the Arts” was the latest in an annual series of exhibitions by Westchester artists who are 55 years and older. The artists and their friends and family members attended an opening reception for the show on June 4. It marks the first time that Fordham has hosted the series.

“We want to be a place where the community can be a part of our campus community,” said Carol Gibney, associate director of campus ministry at Fordham Westchester. Gibney said the campus is eager to host more exhibitions.
