The richness of life can be expressed non-verbally, without recourse to a shared understanding of memory. Join us in this touching celebration of the power of human connection achieved through creating a precious, ephemeral moment between the aging and the caregiver through sensorial appreciation of fine arts and nature.
Discover Frye Museum’s innovative Creative Aging program and how we can apply the deep connections between art, nature and memory.
