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.

While the museum is closed, you are invited to join us virtually. Programs offer participants a chance to see our vast collection of art and historical objects through zoom, and enjoy guided discussions that will spark conversation, learning, and fun.

For groups in either day programs or live-in facilities, you are welcome to join us for an In the Moment: Guided Tour of our collection or In the Moment: Art Making Workshop. These sessions are scheduled at your convenience.

Afternoons@LIM is designed for individual and care partners to engage with the museum from the comfort of home.  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.

On Friday, June 4, 2021 join the Long Island Museum on Zoom for our 5th Annual Arts & Alzheimer’s conference to discover the vast and enriching opportunities available for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of memory loss.
This daylong virtual conference is intended for healthcare facilities, professional caregivers, family care partners as well as art, history and cultural organizations that are looking to find meaningful ways to further connect with this community through the arts.
This virtual event is underwritten by a generous grant from the Knapp/Swezey Foundation, Inc., which enables us to offer it free of charge.

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.
