ART in the afternoon

Art in the Afternoon . Alzheimer’s Patients & Caregivers.  The Cleveland Clinic 


I volunteer with The Cleveland Clinic’s Art in the Afternoon program, an art outreach to Alzheimer’s patients & their caregivers. I am always amazed at the way these precious people arrive – barely able to put a sentence together- but in front of the art collections, or a specific work, they can recount in infinite details a story locked away inside their brains… surprisingly, it is usually an abstract work that unlocks a concrete memory!
