The Faces of Alzheimer’s Exhibition at the Firehouse Gallery

The Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge announces its current Firehouse Gallery exhibition, showing July 3-24, 2019, entitled “The Faces of Alzheimer’s” through Alzheimer’s Services of the Capital Area.

This traveling exhibition features photography by local artists, including Aaron Hogan and Tate Tullier. Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “A man finds room in a few square inches of his face for the traits of his ancestors: for the expression of all his history, and his wants.”

The faces depicted in this exhibition do just that, expressing emotions from joy and sadness, fear and comfort, exhilaration and debilitation. Alzheimer’s Services of the Capital Area created this exhibition to bring about awareness of Alzheimer’s and to educate the community about the disease.

The Arts Council is honored to feature this exhibition in the Firehouse Gallery. Learn more at artsbr.org or by contacting Brian Morfitt, Director of Visual Arts for the Arts Council, at bmorfitt@artsbr.org.
