SilverArts, "a celebration of the creative expression of seniors in North Carolina", is a major component of the traditional athletic competition of North Carolina Senior Games.  In a philosophy that strives to keep seniors healthy, active and involved, SilverArts unites the athlete and artist in a program that recognizes the similarities of both endeavors: discipline, dedication, and pride in one's accomplishments.
