A Week of Total Community Involvement & Betterment #Alzheimers #Dementia #productiveaging #arts4srs

Maturity and Its Muse has just wrapped up one of its busiest weeks of community involvement and betterment. 

Recapping: Monday-we were at the Mildred Lane Kemper Museum at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, Washington University in St. Louis for our monthly KARE program. Memory Care friends from Sunrise Senior Living came to spend the afternoon with us, talk about art, their memories, make pictures, and eat snacks.  This group is led by the charismatic Kristy Beams. See her smiling face, below. She’s the bus driver, too!

Wednesday, we were at the Missouri History Museum for our monthly, “Silver Stages Series: Mature St. Louis Performers for Mature St. Louis Audiences.” This program featured the talented members of the Missouri Cameo Club…singers, dancers, musicians, piano players…never without a smile. Our audience can’t see them often enough…so we’ve booked them for May 2015!

and Friday found some of us at University of Missouri-St. Louis for our panel presentation, “Maturity and Its Muse: Using Visual Arts to Positively Impact the Alzheimer’s Population.” Selected for inclusion in the three day Women in Arts Conference, our group shared our successful collaboration with the audience and fielded questions from audience members regarding their roles as caregivers, etc.”We did a great job!” says moi pridefully.
