Eyes on Art

Continued exposure to art and music can slow the decline of persons with Alzheimer's disease and other memory disorders. Eyes on Art is an innovative program designed in partnership with the Arts Fusion Program of the Central and Western Virginia Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, to engage people with Alzheimer's in meaningful discussions about art. Specially trained docents lead participants and their caregivers on small group tours when the museum is closed to the public. Programs explore different exhibitions each month, and many incorporate music and a variety of hands-on projects.

To schedule a visit from a residential facility, contact tour coordinator Riley McCall by email > or by phone at 434.243.2050.

Programs for early stage participants and their caregivers are held on the third Thursday of each month, from 2:30–3:15 pm, and provide a supportive social environment for all.

To join the early stage group, contact Lauren Deasy Blackshaw by email > or by phone at 434.973.6122, ext. 8506.
