Join us for the Frye Art Museum’s program for individuals with dementia and their care partners. here:now provides gallery discussion tours and art-making opportunities for those living with dementia to enjoy a creative and relaxing afternoon together. Meet Me at the Movies is a new film program designed for fun, reflection, and inspiration.
Twice a month specially trained museum educators lead a discussion-based tour highlighting works of art from the Frye’s exhibitions. Conversation creates an exchange of ideas without relying on short-term memory or recall of art historical information. Tours also include in–gallery hands-on activities.

This six-session class offers conversation-based gallery tours and studio art-making experiences for individuals with dementia and their care partners. Art-making in the Frye Studio encourages experimentation with various media including watercolor paint, clay and collage. A short social time concludes each class.
Preregistration is required for the tours and the six-session class
