Hellman Visiting Artist Program
The Hellman Visiting Artist Program is a community outreach initiative from the UCSF Memory and Aging Center to encourage artists to explore their art through an interaction with the topic of dementia and people affected by the disease. Each year, an accomplished artist is invited to visit the center to learn about neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia and to participate in a creative exchange with researchers, patients, and families. The program involves the broader community through a public performance by the artist. Information about the visiting artists and their work is presented on a web page of the UCSF Memory and Aging Center website.
