People with dementia may have been robbed of their memory, but not their creative capacity.  Learn about Opening Minds through Art (OMA), a groundbreaking intergenerational program, based at Miami University since 2007.  We’ll hear from its founding director, Dr. Elizabeth “Like” Lokon, MGS, Ph.D. who is also a gerontologist, educator and Senior Research Associate at Miami’s Scripps Gerontology Center.  The program’s mission is “to build bridges across ages and cognitive barriers through art.”

Dressed For The Occasion: A Study of Fashion from 1910 - 1970

Presented by Bette Sherman

Glenna Baumbaugh 0 4060 Article rating: No rating

Bette Sherman, fashion historian, will take us on an excursion through nine decades of style and fashion.  They call her the “Queen of Stuff” because her personal, extensive collection gives a peek into a century of fashion industry history.  She is the go-to girl for props for Hollywood movies!  “A lot of what I collect was meant to be thrown away,” Sherman says.  From lithograph powder tins and antique advertising to authentic 20s flapper dresses and vintage handbags, Sherman has it all, and will speak about fashion as well as bring items from her fabulous collection.
