Care (Give and Take)

Care (Give and Take)

An exhibit about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia by artists and their loved ones they care for.

The exhibit features work by artists working with the subject of Alzheimer’s/ dementia paired with artwork by their loved one.  The concept is that artwork is healing for both the caretakers and caregivers.  By including work from the loved one afflicted by the disease, the exhibit is also meant to honor their memory or struggle with the disease. Ellie Brown curated this exhibition funded in part by RISCA.
