Our Mission

Arts & Minds is a not-for-profit organization committed to improving quality of life for all people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias through engagement with art. We partner with museums to provide meaningful art-centered activities that create positive emotional and cognitive experiences, enhance verbal and non-verbal communication, reduce isolation and build community. Our programs empower people with dementia, family members, professional caregivers and educators to strengthen social, emotional and spiritual bonds by engaging with art.

Programs are funded by The Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Columbia Community Service and individual supporters.
