July 12, 2015 at UMMA: University of Michigan Museum of Art in Ann Arbor, MI.
Meet Me at UMMA invites people with mild memory loss to enjoy a guided gallery experience along with family members or care partners. This program is designed for people who live at home and their companions.
If you or someone you care about is experiencing mild memory loss, research has shown that the visual and expressive arts can be good for your mind. In addition, great enjoyment is to be found in seeking out the sights, sounds, textures, and good feelings that come with looking at, learning, and sharing feelings about paintings, music, and other creative arts.
UMMA’s trained docents will accompany small groups for a guided tour and provide the opportunity for everyone to experience different kinds of art and share their responses.
Upcoming “Meet Me” Session: Sunday, October 4, 2015.
Meet Me at UMMA is generously supported by individual donors, and as part of the Museum’s Docent Program, it is made possible in part by the Katherine Tuck Enrichment Fund and the Doris Sloan Memorial Fund.
