Retaining Identity Art Exhibition
Matthaei Botanical Gardens is the venue for this special show of art created by older adults with memory loss and art students working in a variety of materials and media. The exhibit is based on the class created by U-M Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design Associate Professor Anne Mondro. Partnering with the U-M Silver Club mild memory loss program club members, including the newer Elderberry (barely elder) group, students guided the members in art making. The theme of the semester was “Lessons Learned.” Students and club members shared experiences and expertise to create one-of-a-kind works of art. The final result is an art exhibition for the Club Members, care partners and students. This traveling exhibition captures the spirit of creativity and embraces a shared experience.
