In 2009 the Department of Education recently published Meet Me: Making Art Accessible to People with Dementia, a comprehensive resource for creating art programs for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers. All of the content from this publication is available on this easy-to-use website. You can read interviews with experts in the field of art, aging, and Alzheimer's disease; learn about the findings from an evidence-based research study conducted by NYU School of Medicine to evaluate the efficacy of the Meet Me at MoMA program; review guides for creating arts-related programs in various settings; and explore works from MoMA's collection through thematic art modules or by browsing the artwork section. In addition, this site includes special multimedia content pertaining to the Museum's overall programming in art and dementia.
The MoMA Alzheimer's Project is the nationwide expansion of MoMA's art and dementia programs, including Meet Me at MoMA, the Museum's outreach program for individuals living with Alzheimer's disease and their caregivers. Funded by a major grant from MetLife Foundation, the project broadens the reach of these programs through the development of resources that can be used by museums, assisted-living facilities, and other community organizations serving people with dementia and their caregivers. For more information on The MoMA Alzheimer's Project, see the History of the Project.
