Washington Co., WI – The Museum of Wisconsin Art in West Bend has a completely free program for adults with memory loss and their caregivers, SPARK!
This week the program will welcome a class of kindergarteners!
Designed for people with memory loss and their caregivers, SPARK! is a free monthly program that engages participants in conversation about Wisconsin art. Each session includes a facilitated discussion about works of art in the galleries followed by time for coffee and mingling in the studio. MOWA has been part of the regional SPARK! Alliance since 2009, thanks to seed support from the Helen Bader Foundation, and offers this program to highlight and promote self-expression and mental stimulation.
The program begins at 10:30 a.m. Click HERE for more details.
