Grow Old Along With Me

visiting

Artist Name: Charles C. Parks

Year: 1996

Artwork Type: 3-D

Artwork Material: Unknown

Description: "Grow Old Along with Me!" was commissioned and donated to the Newark Senior Center by Warren Perry. It was dedicated on May 6, 1996. It celebrates the later stages of life with three distinctly different figures (an elderly African American, an elderly balding gentleman, and an elderly European woman) dancing together. Smiling, holding hands, and kicking their heels, the figures portray a positive attitude toward life. As the plaque that accompanies the sculpture states, "The best is yet to be!" Sculptor Charles C. Parks said he modeled the gentleman after himself, with the exception of the hairline, which he made more balding in the sculpture. He also said his love of dance is portrayed in this work.
