Time: 9 P.M.
Cost to Attend: Free
Sponsored by Committee or Division: Foundry Guild and Golden Years Club

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.

Elderly residents from Western New York who are suffering with Alzheimer and Dementia will use watercolors and iron oxides paints create artworks. In turn, members of the Alzheimer’s Glass and Iron project will use glass and iron to create sculptures in response or homage to the painting.
