Pop Artist Michael Albert recently visited United Hebrew of New Rochelle for a collage art project using cardboard cereal boxes. United Hebrew, a leading campus of residences and services for older adults, invited the artist after he was included in their Lazarus Gallery food-related exhibition, “A Feast For the Eyes.” Art therapy students, Kamila Agi-Mejias and Leah Floyd, from the College of New Rochelle assisted in the project.
Mr. Albert travels around the country to museums, schools and other gatherings to share his story and his form of pop art. It is a form of expression that explores creativity without the need for special drawing ability. Albert collects letters from the logos of everyday commercial items like cereal boxes and makes them into art. He uses letters from cereal boxes, candy packaging and other symbols to create new works.
“I love to meet new people, share my work and help others create art together” said Mr. Albert. “Collage is a universal art form that is enjoyed by people of all ages.”
United Hebrew of New Rochelle’s nursing home and rehabilitation center has a full staff of recreation therapists who bring special programs to the residents. “Life-long learning is important in keeping the brain active.” Said Rita Mabli, President/CEO of United Hebrew. “We are continually seeking innovative programs such as this interactive project, which keeps the mind stimulated.”
