THE EUGENE AND EVELYN BASS ART STUDIO
“Financially supporting the art studio at a community they loved is one small way I can honor my parents’ memory. It is truly a culmination of everything they loved.”
– Ellen Bass
The new art studio at Lions Gate will be named the Eugene and Evelyn Bass Art Studio in honor of former residents Eugene and Evelyn Bass. Eugene and Evelyn Bass were passionate about
the arts, so when the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate her late parents’ lifelong passion presented itself, their daughter, Ellen Bass, ran with it.
Ellen shares her parents’ love of the arts, believing art is an expression of the soul. “Art allows people to express themselves in ways other forms of communication cannot. Being able to create and share art with others is such a huge part of humanity and this is especially true for seniors,” she says. “Any investment in art is a good idea – especially in a community like Lions Gate. Art gives people the opportunity to flourish. Creative expression leads to happier, healthier and fulfilled residents.”
Evelyn and Eugene both resided in Lions Gate Assisted Living later in life. Ellen says both of her parents always enjoyed the arts-inspired programs – especially the music programs. “Everyone knew my father as ‘the guy that danced and sang along’ at all the programs!”
In addition to supporting the arts, the Bass family was active in various Jewish organizations and causes. According to their daughter, the couple was very supportive of and enthusiastic about Lions Gate and its mission.
