Naperville Community Television (NCTV17) reported on the exhibit of art works created by residents of the Monarch Landing continuing care retirement community in Naperville.

A video of the two-minute report may be viewed on NCTV's YouTube channel.

The exhibit was displayed Aug. 1 through Aug. 7 in the College's Schoenherr Gallery in the Fine Arts Center. More than 20 Monarch Landing residents exhibited their original artwork, including paintings, metal sculpture, fiber arts, photography and Japanese book-binding.

The exhibit extended the partnership between the Fine Arts Group at Monarch Landing and North Central College’s Fine and Performing Arts program. Since the start of the partnership in 2009, North Central College students have performed at Monarch Landing six times and residents have purchased more than 700 tickets to North Central College fine arts performances. The Resident Art Show was the first art show at North Central to feature works by Monarch Landing residents.
