We are excited to announce that the Art of Alzheimer's exhibit is coming to the UW's upper campus, hosted by the UW School of Social Work. Several past showings at Seattle City Hall and the Harborview Medical Center drew attention from the general public and even the Seattle Times: 'Alzheimer’s art exhibit takes away fear, sows hope.'
