Art for Alzheiner’s in Cotuit: The Alzheimer’s Dinner Plate Party.

The Alzheimer’s Family Support Center brings the Alzheimer’s Dinner Plate Party to Cotuit Center for the Arts in Cotuit

CAPE COD (Nov. 5, 2019) — The Alzheimer’s Family Support Center of Cape Cod (AFSCC), will present a collection of over 30 original dinner plates and platters, designed by artists, writers, and people living with dementia disease, at the Cotuit Center for the Arts, Friday, November 22, 4 – 7 pm. Wine, music, and food by area memory care facilities Bridges by Epoch in Mashpee, Harbor Point at Centerville, and Laurentide at Mashpee will be served.

Proceeds from the sale of the plates will fund free services from the AFSCCC.

Says Melanie Braverman, Co-founder and Cultural Director of the AFSCCC, “As a small, service-driven nonprofit, we are always looking for projects that do more than one thing at a time. The Alzheimer’s Dinner Plate Project provides education, allows people with AD/dementia a meaningful way to contribute, and offers reasonably priced, beautiful art for sale to the community at the same time.” The 10.5-inch porcelain dinner plates and various sized platters are dishwasher and microwave safe.

Artists and writers involved in the project include Greg O’Brien (On Pluto: Inside the Mind of Alzheimer’s); and visual artists Marian Roth, TJ Walton, and Steven Koppel.
