Let’s Look is a Spring 2009 group effort between the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, George Warren Brown School of Social Work, Metro Theater Company, the Alzheimer’s Association, and Cole Elementary. Adults with early stage dementia are paired with fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students from Cole in a ten-session workshop on Old Masters. The lessons include art history, architecture, storytelling, and nonverbal communication. Using arts as a tool, the program’s goal is to bridge the gap between generations, to promote community and an understanding of diversity.
