The NATIONAL GALLERY
December 26 - 30, 2014
 1 pm  (one showing a day)

The subject of veteran documentarian Frederick Wiseman’s most recent film is the stately museum that rises at the northern end of London’s Trafalgar Square. Like most of Wiseman’s work, the movie is at once specific and general, fascinating in its pinpoint detail and transporting in its cosmic reach. It’s about art and process, money and mystery, and all the many, many people gazing and gawking and, at times, lining up to see a blockbuster show. Turning the camera on works of art and the people who steer the distinguished London complex, the grand old man of hands-off documentaries studies paintings and bears witness to staff meetings, curatorial discussions and gallery talks; some of the most engrossing of its behind-the-scenes sections expose various conservation efforts. With cool intelligence and a steady camera, Wiseman’s tour of the museum (filmed 2011 - 2012 during major exhibitions for Titian, Leonardo Da Vinci and J.M.W. Turner) includes views of its masters, pausing to look, but also to listen to what becomes a museum-wide conversation on form, content and context. As is customary for a Wiseman documentary, the film lacks voice-over, talking-head interviews or explanatory text, including identifiers but it’s possible to enjoy this film just for its privileged three-hour virtual tour of the distinguished London complex where public perception is largely restricted to public spaces. (NR, 181 mins.)

Art & Alzheimer's Programs 

Art & Conversation
     December 19, 2 pm 
    Despite memory loss, the ability to respond to art and music can still be appreciated on an emotional level. And sometimes, art and music can act as gateways to past stories and memories. In fact, research shows that visual stimulation through art can help stimulate memory and enhance conversation among individuals who have dementia.
    These Arts & Conversation programs, held at various art museums and musical venues across our region, invite people with memory impairment and their caregivers to bond with their peers through discussion and positive reinforcement. Participants engage not only with the art, but also with other members of the group. These groups are free and confidential allowing for freedom of self-expression and open conversation.
    Our Museum Educators, trained in Visual Thinking Strategies, lead participants with memory-loss (and their caregivers) in a conversation about selected works of art.

    Registration is required; please call 508-775-5656.


The Artist Within
January 16, 2015
February 20, 2015

    A hands-on, art-making activity for those with memory loss and their caregivers, The Artist Within provides a warm, caring environment in which to create art. Experienced art instructor Jennifer Stratton will lead these classes once a month at the Museum, where participants can enjoy an hour od creative expression. Classes are free, but please register so the instructor can properly prepare for that session. Call 508-385-4477 ext 15.
