On the heels of a highly successful 2016 exhibition, The Artist Within is on view at the tour locations listed below. It is free to the public and presented in cooperation with the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, the UW Memory and Brain Wellness Center, 4Culture and Elderwise®. Featuring 49 fascinating artworks created by 7 vibrant persons living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias; these surprising, delightful and inspiring works of art reveal seven distinct views of the world plus more about the artists as creative persons and valuable members of our community.  They illuminate a simple truth—while access to language may falter, the imagination can soar.

Featured artists: Julia Blackburn, Rosemary Freeman, Gloria Kinney, Jane Kippenhan, Pat Kristoferson, Lenny Larson, and Rafe Schwimmer.
