Memory Mornings At the Morean

Caregivers and family members and friends with Alzheimer’s or Dementia can register for specific dates to view a work of art from the collection and have a relaxed discussion about the work.

The first artwork in this series will be Chihuly’s Mille Fiori pictured above.
Those who register will receive an email confirmation with a zoom meeting link for the day of the discussion. These talks will be hosted by the Morean Arts Center and will use images of the Mille Fiori as well as a video to help illustrate the color and scale of the installation.
We are able to host these events at $10 per pair. This is a savings of 75% off normal ticket prices. Only 12 slots available per session, so book today.
We look forward to hosting you and having an exciting conversation about Chihuly’s incredible art. See you there!
