The Museum of Modern Art's 'Meet Me at MoMA' Program for People with Alzheimer's and Other Dementia Featured in National Center for Creative Aging's 'Creativity Matters' Symposium on Health, Wellness, and the Arts
Date:3/23/2009

WASHINGTON, March 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Meet Me at MoMA," will be featured at the "NCCA-MetLife Foundation Creativity Matters: Health, Wellness & the Arts Symposium" in Washington, D.C., which is being held on March 30, 31 and April 1. The program was developed by The Museum of Modern Art in New York and focuses on using art to promote dialogue among people with dementia and their caregivers.

Francesca Rosenberg, Director of Community and Access Programs, Museum of Modern Art, said, "We have seen through the Museum's 'Meet Me at MoMA' program how visual art offers people who have Alzheimer's or other dementia an entry for communication and an opportunity for engagement, not only with art, but with their caregivers, loved ones, and society at large."

The Tuesday, March 31 workshop at the Phillips Collection will feature a presentation by Rosenberg on the "The MoMA Alzheimer's Project: Making Art Accessible to People with Dementia," MoMA's ongoing initiative to expand the "Meet Me at MoMA" program model to museums and healthcare facilities across the nation, made possible by a major grant from MetLife Foundation. She will discuss how to determine the best practices in creating, developing, and implementing art-looking gallery tours and related programming for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers in an art museum setting, in assisted living facilities or at home. Rosenberg will also address how to access resources and training in a museum setting that meet the interests of local communities and how to reach out to communities to raise awareness of the benefits of providing art to individuals with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.
