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.
July’s event will explore Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 3 / Contemporary Native North American Art from the Northeast and Southeast, on view at UMMA until September 14, 2014.
Changing Hands: Art Without Reservation 3 / Contemporary Native North American Art from the Northeast and Southeast was organized by the Museum of Arts and Design, New York, and made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts. The exhibition catalogue is made possible in part with the support of the Smithsonian Institution’s Indigenous Contemporary Arts Program. Lead support for UMMA’s installation is provided by the University of Michigan Health System, the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, and the University of Michigan Office of the Provost. Additional generous support is provided by the University of Michigan Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Academic Affairs and Native American Studies Program, and the Doris Sloan Memorial Fund.
Meet Me at UMMA is supported by generous private donors to the Museum’s Docent Program.
