Art In The Moment


A Program for Those With Dementia and Their Caregivers

This FREE program at MAM provides a comforting art-viewing and art-making experience for those in the early stages of dementia and their caregivers. Based on the Museum of Modern Art’s "Meet Me" program, Art in the Moment creates a dementia-friendly learning community and provides an opportunity for caregivers and those with dementia to be together in a creative and relaxed environment. This program provides therapeutic benefits of processing emotions and sparking associations and memories for elders experiencing memory loss.

This program is generously sponsored by the Montana Geriatric Education Center and Dementia Friendly Missoula.
