Art Connects

This program is designed for people affected with early to mid-stage Alzheimer's and other memory loss with their care givers. 

Visiting the museum and looking at paintings, sculptures, and artifacts may rekindle memories and emotions, are special social occasions, and lively outings for men and women who live with this disease.

We will use our collections to renew and build social connections in which all can participate and enjoy. It does not require a background in art, nor does it rely on memory.

Participation Information

Participants will register for one-hour sessions that are offered on Tuesday afternoons at 2PM for no more than eight participants.

Each session will give time to build relationships and a sense of community with the art and with each other.

  • November 14 at 2PM
  • November 28 at 2PM

There is no fee for this tour program, but pre-registration is required.
