Summertime Down Memory Lane - Register now!

There are only five days left to register for our new accessible seniors art program – Summertime Down Memory Lane.

On Saturday, July 20, the McMichael Canadian Art Collection is offering its first accessible art-viewing program for seniors.

Summertime Down Memory Lane Walking Tour is designed for seniors living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of memory loss. This interactive program exercises the brain to inspire emotion, creativity and expression in every brush stroke and drop of acrylic paint. By experiencing Canadian works of art from the Group of Seven, Inuit pieces and contemporary visionaries, participants will reconnect with their past through interpretation and nostalgia.

A McMichael program leader will engage participants in guided conversation throughout select galleries. 
Participants requiring assistance must be accompanied by an attendant.

This program is included in gallery admission.
Registration is required.

Art excites memories at the McMichael

“Memory is a great artist. For every man and for every woman it makes the recollection of his or her life a work of art and an unfaithful record.” – Andre Maurois
