Join us for the opening of an exhibition of art made by older adults and their caregivers over the past two years while participating in the Art in the Moment program. This retrospective reflects how Art in the Moment has developed and been presented at the Art Institute and local CJE facilities.

Art in the Moment is a program that engages individuals with dementia and their care partners or family members to spark creative dialogue and nurture positive interactions. Together with a trained art therapist from CJE SeniorLife, Art Institute museum educators, and volunteers, participants visit the museum galleries to view and discuss renowned works of art and then engage in related art-making projects.

CJE SeniorLife is a partner in serving our community, supported by the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago. CJE SeniorLife receives special support for its innovative programs from the Joseph H. and Belle R. Braun Fund.
