Senior Living Art Showcase Winners Announced
The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) has announced the winners of the 2014 ALFA Senior Living Art Showcase, a competition honoring the passion for community and extraordinary talents of seniors in assisted living, independent living, and memory care communities across the country. Each senior living community was asked to submit one digital photograph of a piece of artwork created by the collaborative efforts of at least three residents. Hundreds of creative residents from 158 communities, representing 33 senior living companies participated.
“The eight winning pieces serve as shining examples of the engaging, community environment that is present in senior living communities across the country.”
Eight winners were selected from the pool of 158 exceptional submissions. Three Fan Favorite Winners were chosen based on popular vote through Facebook, and five Grand Prize Winners were chosen based on their interpretation of this year’s theme: It’s The Little Things in Life that Matter Most.

Residents came together to tell stories about the things they honor most, learn about their friends’ lives, and share ideas about how to unite these cherished items into one masterpiece,” said Richard P. Grimes, ALFA president and CEO. “The eight winning pieces serve as shining examples of the engaging, community environment that is present in senior living communities across the country.”
