    Add to Calendar 09/11/2017 1:30 PM 09/11/2017 3:00 PM America/New_York Meet Me at the Museum: Mother & Child

    Monday, September 11, 2017
    1:30 – 3:00 p.m.

    The Rockwell believes in advancing the desire of our founding collectors, Bob and Hertha Rockwell, to make the art collection accessible to as many people as possible. We build community through partnerships and collaboration. That’s why we’re pleased to once again partner with Corning Museum of Glass for the 2017-2018 year to offer the Meet Me at the Museum program, a collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association. 

    The monthly series is designed for persons with dementia and their care partners. The Museums are co -hosting the monthly events and will share program themes on a bi-monthly basis.  The programs are held on the second Monday of each month from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m. at each museum, alternating monthly.

    Join us at The Rockwell to kick off this program season. This September, the program will feature celebrated African-American artist, Elizabeth Catlett’s sculpture entitled Mother and Child, a new museum acquisition. Attendees will explore the theme of mother and child, both in art and personal experience. The discussion will then lead to the creation of a collaborative poetry activity, inspired by the group’s collective observations and musings. The gallery session will conclude with light refreshments in the Museum’s Education Center.

    Registration for the Meet Me at the Museum Programs is strongly encouraged. Please contact the Alzheimer’s Association to register by calling 800.272.3900.
