Event Details

2:30–4:30 p.m.
This free program offers accessible art experiences to adults with Alzheimer’s and dementia and their caregivers. In a private setting, Museum educators lead a guided conversation specifically designed to engage this audience, followed by a one-on-one gallery exploration when attendees will have the option to sketch, talk, or reflect on the works in the galleries with their escort.

Alzheimer’s affects an estimated 5.7 million adults and families in the United States. Research has shown that when engaging with the visual arts and art making, overall health and happiness rise significantly for individuals living with dementia. Accessible guided conversations and exposure to art experiences improve the quality of life for participants as well as their caregivers. Art Can creates a welcoming and inclusive environment for this underserved community.

Art Can is supported by the generosity of the Keystone Savings Foundation and the Stabler Foundation, and by the Barbara and Maxwell Davison Fund for Alzheimer’s Care of the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation
