Meet Me at UMMA: A museum arts experience for persons with mild memory loss and their care partners
Meet Me at UMMA invites people with mild memory loss to enjoy a guided gallery experience along with family members or care partners. This program is designed for people who live at home and their companions. If you or someone you care about is experiencing mild memory loss, research has shown that the visual and expressive arts can be good for your mind. In addition, great enjoyment is to be found in seeking out the sights, sounds, textures and good feelings that come with looking at, learning and sharing feelings about paintings, music and other creative arts.
UMMA's trained docents will accompany small groups for a guided tour and provide the opportunity for everyone to experience different kinds of art and share their responses. Each participant may decide about their level of participation in the discussion while enjoying the experience of looking at and responding to art in an educational and supportive environment. The October program will include a look at the rarely seen sculptures of artist Adolph Gottlieb along with prints and paintings on view in the exhibition, Adolph Gottlieb: Sculptor as well as other works from the Museum's collections. We hope you can join us!
