Alzheimer’s Glass and Iron is a multi-step, cross-generational art project that will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. The project consists of four steps: production of artwork by elderly community members, interpretation and rendered sculptures (by iron castors, glass castors and glass blowers) and gallery shows that culminate in an auction of the featured art pieces (with proceeds to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association).
