Join OMA clients and volunteers in a gallery exhibition celebrating the artists’ accomplishments while educating the public about the creative capacities of people with dementia.
Opening Minds through Art (OMA) is an award-winning, evidence-based, intergenerational art-making program for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of neurocognitive disorders. Its failure-free program provides opportunities for creative self-expression and social engagement for people with dementia. OMA also provides volunteers with opportunities to improve their attitudes toward aging through the weekly interaction with OMA program participants.
The Oxford Community Arts Center 3rd floor studios are home to the original Opening Minds through Art program, led by Dr. Elizabeth Lokon. For more information about the OMA program visit https://www.scrippsoma.org/
