Individuals with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease and their care partners are invited to a conversational tour led by Chrysler docents. Each month we will explore a new exhibition or theme. Share your experiences and observations and learn from other participants as well.
This month’s program will feature the exhibition Preston Singletary: Raven and the Box of Daylight. Preston Singletary’s work fuses time-honored glassblowing traditions with Pacific Northwest Indigenous art to honor his ancestral Tlingit heritage, a tribe in southern Alaska. Tlingit culture and oral tradition has a rich history of pairing objects with foundational stories and histories of tribal families. By drawing upon this method of visual storytelling, Singletary’s art creates a unique theatrical atmosphere in which each object follows and enhances an unfolding narrative.
Art Matters is a free program presented in partnership with the Southeastern Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. To register, please call 800-272-3900.
