Alzheimer’s Glass and Iron Mission Statement - 2014

The Alzheimer’s Glass and Iron project is a cross generational community arts project with the focus of raising awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and using art as catalyst to comfort  grandchildren, caregivers and elderly affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia. Team members certified in the Alzheimer’s Association “Memories in the Making Watercolor Class” volunteer with the elderly to create watercolor paintings. The paintings are then interpreted into sculptures by glass and iron artists. We host workshops and events to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s. Through this process fading memories become eternal artworks.
