    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.

    The programs are held on the second Monday of each month, introducing a new topic or theme each time, frequently paired with art-making, music and refreshments. Please note that the November program at The Rockwell is not on the second Monday – the program will be held November 5th to avoid the November 12th holiday.

    This month, explore The Rockwell’s spotlight exhibition, Audubon in the Exotic West: North American Quadrupeds, showcasing the elaborate and detailed lithographs of famed naturalist John James Audubon. The exhibition features wild wolves, crafty foxes and nimble rabbits.

    Animals have inspired some of the most unforgettable characters in our favorite childhood stories, such as Little Red Riding Hood and Peter Rabbit and Winnie-the Pooh to name a few. Step into the wild with us and view 107 beautiful stone lithographs which will be the inspiration for fun creative stories.  

    The afternoon will conclude with light refreshments in the Museum’s Education Center.

    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!
