Memories in the Museums

First Wednesdays, 10 - 11:30 a.m.
Designed especially for visitors with memory loss and their caregivers, Memories in the Museums is a new program developed in partnership between the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Contemporary Arts Center, and the Taft Museum of Art. On the first Wednesday of every month, participants join trained docents at one of the partner institutions to look at art together, discuss observations, and share memories. Multisensory and multi-modal activities complement each session and encourage remembering through all of the senses. All participants are invited for refreshments starting at 10am; gallery experiences begin at 10:30am.
