Alzheimer's Iron Green Mountain Sculptures - Returned to Resident Artists of Cambridge Guest Homes

In summer 2015 residents of Cambridge Guest Home participated in a Alzheimer's Glass and Iron Sculpture Workshop. The elderly artists used Crayola Modeling Clay to sculpt, artists lead the workshop using the Green Mountains as a prompt and encouraging dialogue based on preserved memory. One lady sculpted the canoe her and her husband used to take into the lakes at the base of the Green Mountains. Once the clay sculptures were created, volunteer artists made molds around them and poured the sculptures in cast iron. Below are images of the sculptures being returned in  metal to a few of the residents who participated in our workshop.
