Making Memories, an accessible arts program for adults living with early Alzheimer’s and other dementias and their care partners, provides a guided exploration of our permanent collections with specially trained museum staff and student guides.
This free program offers opportunities to enjoy conversation, works of art, and new experiences at the Davis. Participation is free, but advance registration is required as space is limited. In addition, private groups are encouraged to book a custom program. For more information or to pre-register, email Arthurina Fears, curator of museum education and programs, at email@example.com.
