Artist's support Alzheimer's Research and Education
Memories in the Making, a fund raising event sponsored by the San Diego Alzheimer's Association paired local artists with persons who have dementia and memory loss. The work of art was created in a Memories in the Making class and this art was placed side-by-side with a piece of art created by a local artist who found inspiration in the original artwork. These companion pieces of art work will be featured at an Art Auction Fundraising Event Monday October 4, 2010 at the Old Globe Theatre in Balboa Park, San Diego CA. Three of the local artists are Josie and Al Rodriguez and Viviana Lombrozo. "I was moved that I could meet the artist whose work I interpreted in my encaustic art. Her name was Rosemary and loved the idea of being an artist for a day!" Al's piece was a beautiful accordion artist book, a memorial to his mom who recently passed away from Alzheimer's, and Viviana's, an exquisite art quilt.
