THE ARTIST WITHIN
The Artist Within – A Different View of Dementia. Surprising, delightful and inspiring art by vibrant people, 60-101, living with Alzheimer’s Disease and other Dementias. This extraordinary artwork is a revelation, opening hearts and minds to a different way of thinking about dementia, enabling us to see that people living with dementia are still here, living with dignity, creativity and joy.
Originally presented with major support from the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, the Department of Neighborhoods and 4Culture, The Artist Within continues in 2017.
UW School of Social Work, First Floor Gallery, January 9 to March 31, 2017, Monday – Friday, 8am t0 6pm, 4101 15th Ave NE, Seattle

Free and open to all, the exhibition will feature fascinating artwork by people, 60 to 101, who live with dementia. Our thanks to the artists and their families for sharing this wonderful artwork with us and to the life affirming programs of Elderwise, the Frye Art Museum here:now and Bridges programs; and Full Life Care.
