Some artists in New York may be wishing to get older faster. The Carter Burden Gallery in New York caters to artists age 60 and older. No kids allowed.

"Older adults do not stop being who they are because they hit a particular age... I think it's giving an opportunity to a group of people that have had the opportunity removed simply because of their age. Opportunities are few and far between at any gallery for any artist of any age, so I think we're trying to just right a wrong, rather than get in the way of anyone else having an opportunity." said gallery director Marlena Vaccaro.
