LIFE Pittsburgh and Passports Green Art Projects

Passports has been working with Life Pittsburgh for three years to produce art created from recycled items! Seniors have stamped vintage fabric, rolled paper beads made of magazines and wrapping paper, repurposed old string, sewed, pasted and collaged their way into producing many incredible works of art for the walls and common spaces of several local senior day cares. Other Life Centers hosting art by Passports are in the Hill District and on the North Shore. The Organization founders, Christine Bethea and Brenda Brown, have plans to work with other companies that cater to the senior population in the region, in the near future.
