It all started two years ago when resident Irwin "Irv" Weiner held his first art exhibit at Sunrise of Woodland Hills, CA, during the community’s Alzheimer's fundraiser. Since then, his exhibit has become a critical part of an annual silent auction that raises funds for The Alzheimer’s Foundation – much of which are raised by the proceeds from Irv's work. Last year, he did a show in Valencia, CA, at Sunrise at Sterling Canyon where he plans to unveil his works once again. This year, Irv plans to condense his exhibit to around 25 pieces, down from his usual 75-piece shows in hopes of making it a traveling exhibit.
