The Kreeger Museum, in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association® National Capital Area Chapter and other regional senior organizations, has developed an exciting new art program specially designed for people living with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), their families and caregivers.  Modeled after the pioneering MeetMe at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art, NYC) program, Conversations at The Kreeger Museum provides a forum for dialogue and connection through looking at art.  Docents lead small interactive tours and discussions through the museum’s accessible galleries and grounds. The tours are intended to stimulate conversation and memories for participants and to create a sense of well-being.  During the program, visitors have exclusive access to the museum’s great architecture, sculpture, and paintings.  The program is free of charge not only individuals suffering from the disease but also to caregivers and family members who often face significant medical, emotional and economic challenges as a direct result of this devastating disease.  Conversations is the first museum program of its kind in the Washington, DC area.  Read more here.
