Memories in the Making: The Consequence of Life by David
Memories in the Making is an Alzheimer’s Association art therapy program for individuals with Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Volunteer facilitators help people with dementia – many of whom often have no art background – create drawings and paintings. These sessions provide participants social interaction and boost their self-esteem while opening the channels of communication with loved ones.
Today’s featured Memories in the Making artist is David. David is a man of many talents. Not only is he skilled at painting and drawing, but he has a talent in music as well. He has been a musician for over 25 years and was a member of blue grass, country western and country rock bands. He went through mechanical engineering courses in college and worked throughout his career as an army officer. He has one son of whom he is very proud and with whom he shares his creative skills.
David’s painting is just one of the many works of art that will be auctioned off at our annual Memories in the Making Art & Wine Auction, held this year on March 2 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. In addition to work by Memories in the Making artists, the silent and live auction selection will include fine wines, unique experiences and luxury items.
