Opening reception: “Beginning at the End: Portraits of Dementia”

May 17 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

- Free

Join writer/photographer Joe Wallace on Friday, May 17th from 5:30-7:30 at The Umbrella Community Arts Center in Concord for the opening reception of his exhibit, “Beginning at the End: Portraits of Dementia.”

The exhibit is a photographic portrait project humanizing people affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia by challenging the audience to consider the subject and their lifetime of experience even if they can no longer access or share their memories.

Wallace’s goal is to challenge perceptions about what aging with Alzheimer’s and dementia looks like. To use empathy as means for connection and understanding. To tell story after story of these amazing humans so we truly see THEM not just their diagnosis.

The exhibit runs from May 17 – June 13, 2019.
