We invite people with memory loss or dementia and their caregivers to join Arts & Minds at Bard Graduate Center Gallery for an interactive tour of Sonia Delaunay: Living Art. This exhibition invites you to explore the diverse and interconnected work of Sonia Delaunay, a painter, artisan, and designer who focused on the primacy of color and a synthesis of the arts. Living Art comprises almost 200 objects spanning the realms of fashion, textiles, interiors, books, mosaics, tapestries, and more, reflecting Delaunay’s kaleidoscopic output from the 1910s to the 1970s.

All programs are free, but prior reservation is required.

Arts & Minds is a not-for-profit organization committed to improving quality of life for all people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias through engagement with art. We partner with museums to provide meaningful art-centered activities that create positive emotional and cognitive experiences, enhance verbal and non-verbal communication, reduce isolation, and build community. Our programs empower people with dementia, family members, professional caregivers, and educators to strengthen social, emotional, and spiritual bonds by engaging with art.
