The international Quilt Study Center & Museum presents a unique collection of studio quilts created as one artist attempts to negotiate the psychic and emotional minefield that is the dementia experience for both those suffering from diseases, including Alzheimer's and for their caregivers. "Ambiguity & Enigma: Recent Quilts by Michael" includes more than a dozen new works that flowed from James's struggle to come to terms with his artist wife's diagnosis of younger onset Alzheimer's disease.
