The Opening Minds Through Art program was started in Ohio in 2007 as a way to give people with Alzheimer’s and dementia a chance to be artists. The Springfield Art Association has now taught classes over a fall and spring session. A reception on Friday from 5:30 – 7 at the SAA Collective Gallery at the Hoogland Center for the Arts will display the latest work.
