Special Exhibit

Flutterby was an exhibit of 17 pieces of original artwork and narrative by award-winning artist and writer Andrea Kay (pictured, right, with Alzheimer's Association of Greater Cincinnati Executive Director Paula Kollstedt. Ms. Kay's artwork is of her father during the time he had Alzheimer's disease. Her work reflects the power of art to communicate when words fail. The artwork and a stage performance premiered at the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center in 2010.
