here:now – Arts Engagement for Adults Living with Dementia

here:now is an arts engagement program for adults living with dementia and their care partners to enjoy a creative and relaxing time together in a supportive setting. The free program offers opportunities to enjoy conversation, works of art, and new experiences in the Frye galleries and art studio. 

Gallery Tours

Twice a month, specially trained museum educators and gallery guides lead a discussion-based tour highlighting works of art in the Frye galleries. Conversation creates an exchange of ideas without relying on short-term memory or recall of art historical information. Tours also include in-gallery activities.

Art-Making Class and Gallery Tour

This six-week class offers conversation-based gallery tours and studio art-making experiences for adults with dementia and their care partners. Art-making in the Frye Studio encourages experimentation with various media; a short social time concludes each class.
