Inspiration spotlight: What is an EGOT?

February 12th, 2023

EGOT NoHo Senior Arts Colony Apts 2023

You may have heard the term EGOT before and weren’t sure what it meant. It’s actually a pretty big deal in the entertainment industry. To get EGOT status, an actor must have earned an Emmy for a tv or movie performance, a Grammy for a music or audio performance, an Oscar for acting, and a Tony for a Broadway performance. We told you it was a tall order! Only a few people have attained EGOT status. Recently actress Viola Davis won at the 2023 Grammy Awards and is now an official EGOT. Other impressive EGOT members include Audrey Hepburn, Rita Moreno, John Legend, and Whoopi Goldberg. At NoHo Senior Arts Colony, we are so inspired by their versatility, determination, and longevity in the entertainment industry. They show us that we can all have and nurture many talents and pursue areas out of our comfort zones to discover even more creativity with us. Congrats Viola! We love your work.

Advantages of a gluten-free lifestyle

January 31st, 2023

gluten free food NoHo Senior Arts Colony

Many of the things we eat every day affect our overall health. Gluten, for example, is one of those things. Many people have a gluten intolerance or allergy. We were brought up thinking it was a vital part of the “food pyramid.” Now, we’ve learned that is can affect our bodies adversely. Gluten allergy and intolerance symptoms include hives, stuffy or runny nose, sneezing, headaches, and more. Check with your doctor if you think you need to be tested for gluten or other food-related allergies. At NoHo Senior Arts Colony, we want you to be happy and healthier. Even if you aren’t allergic to gluten, a gluten-free lifestyle has definite perks which include less bloating, more energy (more pep in your step), less joint pain, better weight, and the list goes on and on. The good news is that there are many delicious gluten substitutes and gluten-free recipes to augment your food choices and satisfy your belly. And more and more restaurants are offering gluten-free cuisine, and pretty much all grocery stores have gluten-free items. Find out online from John Hopkins Medicine if a gluten-free life is right for you.

January 16 is an extraordinary day immersed in history, justice, and peace. It is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Today we celebrate one of the most important people in history and his dream. His inspiration continues several decades later because civil rights are human rights. There are several ways to honor him and what he stood for. You can rewatch his famous I Have A Dream speech. Read books written about him. Visit the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis, TN, housed at the location where he was assassinated. It’s an important experience that brings forth more enlightening details about civil rights in America. Visit his memorial in Atlanta and/or Washington DC.

Her contemporary art continues to be timeless and is seen by new audiences in pop-up experiences at major museums, editorial fashion shoots in major magazines, and so much more. Eclectic, colorful, and prolific, her work is a  huge part of the art scene. She started painting when she was a child, and it flourished from there. Without years and years of formal training, Kusama’s work is proof that art and inspiration can be instinctual, and that hard work pays off. Her installation art rooms, painted pumpkins, video art pieces, colored light pieces, and the list goes on and on, continue to captivate us all. She even writes poetry!
