The Whatcom Museum invites people with early-stage memory loss or dementia and their care partners for a two-part virtual program via Zoom designed to engage participants with an art-filled experience. This one-hour-long program consists of a conversation-based virtual gallery tour of our exhibition Conversations Between Collections: The Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Whatcom Museum followed by a landscape collage art-making activity that can be done at home with step-by-step guidance from our museum educator. Participants are asked to use materials commonly found at home for this art activity.
Once you have registered for this program, you will receive an email confirmation that includes login information for the Zoom presentation, as well as other digital materials.
The Whatcom Museum is offering this as a prototype virtual program free of charge to test the viability of continuing to offer Museum in Mind in this format. Future programs will include a registration fee, and may also include physical materials to be picked up from the Museum prior to participation (once the Museum re-opens).
