Alzheimer’s Greater Los Angeles Hosted Fifth Annual Memories in the Making Art Exhibition And Auction

Alzheimer’s Greater Los Angeles hosted their fifth Annual Memories in the Making (MiM) exhibition and auction, June 15, 2017 at Building Bridges Art Exchange (Bergamot Station Arts Center, 2525 Michigan Ave, Unit F2, Santa Monica, CA.) This unique fine arts program offers creative and non-verbal communication through art, enhancing connections with families, professional caregivers, and others. The MiM program is a gallery exhibition and auction showcasing the amazing artwork created by people in the mid-to-late stages of Alzheimer’s.  It is one of ALZGLA’s unique arts4ALZ programs that helps provide insight into the thoughts and memories that participants are often challenged in communicating.  MiM is made possible through the generosity of Susan Disney Lord, Abigail Disney, Tim Disney, and Roy P. Disney in loving memory of their mother, Patricia Disney, who was an artist.

Alzheimer’s Greater Los Angeles is the only local full-service, dementia-focused, nonprofit with 36 years of experience, 5 locations serving Greater Los Angeles and the Inland Empire.  ALZGLA provides programs and services free of charge to individuals with Alzheimer’s and related dementias, their families, caregivers and the community.
