This is a free program for participants with memory loss and their caregivers.
Designed for people with memory loss and their caregivers, SPARK! is a free monthly program that engages participants in conversation about Wisconsin art. Each session includes a facilitated discussion about works of art in the galleries followed by time for coffee and mingling in the studio. MOWA has been part of the regional SPARK! Alliance since 2009, thanks to seed support from the Helen Bader Foundation, and offers this program to highlight and promote self-expression and mental stimulation.
February 25 | Tom Uttech's Enchanted Forests
Examine two of Tom Uttech's migration paintings in the gallery side by side. Take part in a facilitated conversation about the similarities and differences and learn about the myriad of species flying, swarming, and bolting across the canvases.
March 31 | Treasures from the Collection
Get a glimpse of artwork that is not on public view. Take part in an engaging conversation about its content and through a facilitated discussion, interpret the meaning of the work and relate it to your own life.
April 28 | Fun with Kindergarteners
