CHICAGO (May 24, 2019) - As part of the Chicago Housing Authority’s celebration of Older Americans Month, senior residents from four CHA senior buildings took a field trip to the National Museum of Mexican Art Thursday in Pilsen.

About 80 seniors from Albany Terrance, Alfreda Barnett Duster, Zelda Ormes and William Jones took a guided tour of the museum, which includes 5,000 paintings, photographs and sculptures that celebrate Mexican art and culture.

The Local Advisory Council’s Rosemary Coleman, President of the Central region, coordinated the event.

The field trip wrapped up the third week of Older Americans Month, which CHA has celebrated with educational and recreational activities at CHA senior buildings and elsewhere throughout May. The calendar has included a Mother’s Day Celebration, a lunch and bingo at University of Chicago and digital training.
