About the exhibition

Since 2010 the Frye Art Museum has been at the forefront of museum programming for people living with dementia and care partners. Featuring artwork from program participants, Art on the Mind: Ten Years of Creative Aging illustrates the success of arts engagement in bringing joy, respect, and dignity to people living with dementia while destigmatizing the disease.
