Thank you to everyone who attended this year's event!
Memories in the Making® resulted from the exploration of the use of art as an alternative form of expression for people with dementia. While Alzheimer’s disease brings constant reminders of failures and losses, Memories in the Making provides a nonjudgmental environment in which participants can express their feelings. The focus is on the process rather than the product, allowing people with dementia to experience moments of joy and a renewed sense of accomplishment and self-respect.
Thank you very much to Bliss Stamped Jewelry for donating 100 necklaces for the Memories in the Making Art Auction & Gala! If you missed your chance to purchase a necklace at the event, you're in luck — through May, whenever you make an online purchase, use the code ENDALZ, and Bliss Stamped Jewelry will donate 50 percent of the profits to the Alzheimer's Association.
Special thanks to this year's pairing artists:
