ANNOUNCING MOMENTS OF JOY – AN ART EXHIBITION
This is art that tells a story—about living with Alzheimer’s. It’s never easy but there are moments of joy—sometimes a lot, sometimes not so much—but joy nonetheless.
In the first exhibition of its kind in Seattle, this surprising, delightful and inspiring art will allow us to experience these moments—opening hearts and minds to remarkable people. At Moments of Joy, intriguing art creates a different way of thinking about dementia, enabling us to see that—though they have changed—they are still here, living with dignity, creativity and joy.
Presented in cooperation with the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, Moments of Joy will be held at City Hall’s Lobby Gallery & Anne Focke Gallery, January 8 through February 26, 2016.
THE INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN IN SUPPORT OF THE EXHIBITION LAUNCHES WEDNESDAY – AUG 26TH. STAY TUNED!
In loving Memory of Jean McFee Raichle – March 28, 1919 – April 19, 2015
While Alzheimer’s is scary, art isn’t. It is our hope that this artwork will encourage a leap from fear to understanding, empathy and creative thinking. Leading to real conversations about how to build a dementia friendly community—more inclusive, more engaging, more supportive and more hopeful for everyone whose lives are touched by dementia and inspiring us all to become better stewards of an aging population.
