My Aging Face FlyerAthens-Clarke County Library is opening the Quiet Gallery to visitors again, and our first post-pandemic exhibition is My Aging Face: A Conversation on Aging, Beauty and Redefining Norms for Women Over 40. The exhibit, curated by artist Allyn Rippin, features photos of women over 40 who posted close-ups of their faces on Instagram, along with short descriptions telling what they saw, and what they would like others to see.

The #myagingface project is part of the National Endowment for the Arts Big Read Program in partnership with Arts Midwest. This year’s selected book is Roz Chast’s graphic memoir, “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?”

The exhibition runs through June 30, and is free and open to the public.
