Meet Me at the Museum

  • The Rockwell Museum 111 Cedar St Corning, NY, 14830 United States (map)

he Rockwell Museum and Corning Museum of Glass, along with the Memory Maker Project, will be teaming up again for the 2018-2019 year to offer the Meet Me at the Museum program, a collaboration with the Alzheimer’s Association. This monthly, interactive tour series is designed specifically for persons with dementia and their care partners, using art and conversation as a catalyst for meaningful connections.

This month, our conversation will focus on The Rockwell Museum’s new ANTIGRAVITY site-specific installation, Needle-and-Bowl, by Melissa Vandenberg. Crafted from repurposed handkerchiefs, Needle-and-Bowl prompts us to think about things we all have in common and the things that we keep and collect.

Our conversation will be complemented by a hands-on handkerchief personalization art project.  The afternoon will conclude with light refreshments.

Meet Me at the Museum is a free program; registration is strongly encouraged – please contact the Alzheimer’s Association by calling 800.272.3900. We look forward to making memories with you!
