    The Rockwell Museum and Corning Museum of Glass, along with the Memory Maker Project, will be teaming up again for the 2018-2019 year to offer the Meet Me at the Museum program, a collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association. This monthly, interactive tour series is designed specifically for persons with dementia and their care partners, using art and conversation as a catalyst for meaningful connections.

    This month, our conversation will focus on The Rockwell Museum’s new ANTIGRAVITY site-specific installation, Needle-and-Bowl, by Melissa Vandenberg. Crafted from repurposed handkerchiefs, Needle-and-Bowl prompts us to think about things we all have in common and the things that we keep and collect.

    Our conversation will be complemented by a hands-on handkerchief personalization art project.  The afternoon will conclude with light refreshments.

    Meet Me at the Museum is a free program; registration is strongly encouraged – please contact the Alzheimer’s Association by calling 800.272.3900. We look forward to making memories with you!
