Fifty-four small format art quilts (9″ x 12″) illustrate the disease from a variety of perspectives. These small quilts hang among 182 “Name Quilts,” each 6 inches wide and 7 feet tall, which carry the names of more than 10,000 individuals who have/had Alzheimer’s or a related dementia. The names of loved ones, written on fabric patches by family members and friends, honor the 5.4 million Americans in the United States struggling with Alzheimer’s disease.
