Local Jewish artist Becca Bernstein has worked with residents of senior care facilities for nine years. Her art bears witness to the separation of generations and relationship patterns indicative of modern day. "The Last Room" is a public space installation that recreates the apartment of a fictional resident. Furniture stands beside knick-knacks and framed photos, there are reminder notes on the wall and a mylar balloon tied to a geriatric walker, among many other artifacts, or evidence of life. "The Last Room" was made possible by the Regional Arts and Culture Council, with additional help from The George Sugarman Foundation and Providence Elderplace. Jan. 30-Feb. 24. Portland Building, 1120 SW 5th Ave.
