Art Connects

Art Connects is being offered in person and onsite at the Albany Institute of History & Art.

This program is designed for people affected with early to mid-stage Alzheimer's and other memory loss with their care givers. 

Looking at paintings, sculptures, and artifacts (virtually) may rekindle memories and emotions, are special social occasions, and lively outings for men and women who live with this disease.

We will use our collections to renew and build social connections in which all can participate and enjoy. It does not require a background in art, nor does it rely on memory.

We are currently accepting reservations for our Fall 2022 programs. Please see registration links below for upcoming programs:

Tuesday, November 1st 1:00 - 2:30 PM

Tuesday, December 6th 1:00 - 2:30 PM

Programs are booked on a first come, first served basis. Advance registration is required, and the accompanying care-partner must also register. Capacity is limited. For questions or assistance registering, please contact Mallory Schultz, Education Coordinator, at 518 463 4478 x 404.

Our current Covid precautions call for participants in in-person programs to wear face coverings (masks).

Please note that while this program is scheduled to be onsite at the museum, should conditions evolve regarding Covid-19 safety we reserve the right to convert this event to a virtual platform.
