Beginning this Fall, the Meadows Museum will begin an ambitious multi-phase plan to make its spaces and
programs accessible and relevant to all visitors, including those
with special needs. Read more about this new program here (pdf) or here (word doc).
For information about visiting the Meadows Museum with individuals with special needs, please contact Carmen Smith at 214.768.4677. A limited number of wheelchairs are available upon request.
This three-day program for individuals with early
stage dementia and their care partners, will involve a
variety of creative activities in a relaxed setting. Participants
will explore the galleries through interactive
exercises and puzzles, experiment with different
materials to create individual and group projects,
and discover works of art through music, dance,
literature, storytelling and role play. Light refreshments
will be served.
Space is limited and advance
registration is required. The same program is offered
twice a semester; participants may choose either
Series A, which is offered on three consecutive
Wednesdays, or Series B, which is offered on three
consecutive Fridays. To register and for information
about visiting the Meadows Museum with individuals
