Meet Me at the DIA

Saturday, August 17, 2013 |10:30 AM– 12:00 PM

  • For Adults
People with early stage dementia (including Alzheimer’s) and their caregivers are invited to participate in gallery discussions about art led by DIA staff and volunteers with expertise in this area. Participants are made to feel welcome and comfortable and discussions are based on the observations and connections made by the group. The program provides opportunities for social engagement and intellectual stimulation in a safe, inspiring environment. All participants, including caregivers, are encouraged to contribute to the discussions. Meet Me at the DIA is modeled after a successful program at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
 
Sessions meet by the elephant sculptures in the Walter Gibbs Learning Center.
