Reigniting Life through Art with Alzheimer’s Disease

This is a fantastic video which inspires and gives hope to those dealing with Alzheimer’s disease.

Please do yourself a favor and watch this video.

This video was made at the David W. Streets Galleries in Beverly Hills, California on November 5, 2010 at an event titled “Painting in Twilight: An Artist’s Escape from Alzheimer’s.” This event showcased the watercolors of Lester E.
