Roberson has partnered with The Memory Maker Project to offer Nature’s Memories–a series of creative pieces by people living with memory loss and Alzheimer’s. The prose and paintings featured were all inspired by Nature’s Best Photography.
150 people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss partook in this program from seven local care communities. Participants were encouraged to explore the materials and tell their own stories resulting in the body of work that you’ll see at Roberson. As you look through the exhibit, we hope you will think and talk about memory loss in new way–focusing on peoples’ talents, thoughts, and abilities.
The Memory Maker Project provides art, culture, and advocacy programs for people living with memory loss and their loved ones in New York’s Southern Tier. It’s a small grassroots non-profit project of the Center for Transformative Action, a Cornell University affiliate. Learn more at MemoryMakerProject.org
