January 21 Art to Remember: Animals in Art
2-3:30 pm

Joslyn’s Art-Based Program for People Living with Memory Loss

Art to Remember gallery talks are designed for small groups of visitors with memory loss, early-stage Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, and their friends or care partners. Held in the Museum’s galleries on select Sundays at 2 pm, Art to Remember encourages participants to discover themselves while reminiscing, reflecting, or relating their own life stories to the thematic connections revealed in works of art. All programs are facilitated by Joslyn's experienced docents.
