Participants share work from Virtual Art Making Workshop on seascapes

In the Moment is a program designed to creatively engage those living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss and their care partners. Until we are able to hold our programs on site again, we are happy to offer In the Moment virtually. 

Virtual In the Moment: Guided Tours are our gallery based programs. Participants view selections from the museum’s collection of art and historical objects, as well as exciting objects on view in our seasonal exhibits through zoom, and are guided by museum educators in conversation, learning, and fun. 

Virtual In the Moment: Art Making Workshops offer hands-on opportunities for creative expression with all needed art materials provided by the museum and delivered to your door!  In this program you interact with museum educators over zoom, where they guide you through the art making process.

For groups in either day programs or live-in facilities, these sessions are scheduled at a day and time convenient for the group. For individuals and care partners, we offer Afternoons@LIM. Sessions are held one to two times a month.  See the flyer below to find this month’s offering. 

To register or for more information please contact us at educators@longislandmuseum.org or (631) 751-0066 ext. 212.

In the Moment is offered free of charge, as all programs are underwritten by a generous grant from The Knapp/Swezey Foundation, Inc.

Annual Arts & Alzheimer’s Conference

Discover the vast and enriching opportunities for creative engagement available for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss during LIM’s annual Arts & Alzheimer’s Conference.  The daylong event is held each spring and intended for a broad audience, including staff at healthcare facilities, professional caregivers, family care partners, and  those who work at art, history and cultural organizations. The goal of the conference is to share ways to connect with people living with memory loss through the arts.

This event is underwritten by a generous grant from the Knapp/Swezey Foundation, Inc., which enables us to offer it free of charge.

Information about this spring’s conference will be available in early 2022.

2021 Virtual Arts & Alzheimer’s Conference. Session with artist Elizabeth Parry-Faist

The LIM believes in the power of the arts to unite us and soothe our collective spirit. In an effort to inspire you and your loved ones to explore art together we are launching At Home with LIM: In the Moment. With images from our collection, along with guiding questions to help foster conversation, this will be an opportunity to engage creatively together. For those of you who have been on our gallery tours, you know there is no right or wrong answer. We’ll also share some background information on each image so you can understand a little bit about the piece once you’ve explored it on your own.

We will start with our most recent art exhibit, Off the Rack: Building and Preserving LIM’s Art Treasures. This show features treasures from our permanent collection in a range of styles and themes.

We hope you’ll enjoy bringing a little bit of our collection into your home until we can be together at the museum again.
