Alzheimer's Sufferers Find Identity Through Art

"You should see their faces when they see the art and they say 'oh, that's very pretty' and you say 'you created that. That's your art. You're an artist," says Gina Stutchman of The Arbors. "It really gives back a value to self esteem and it gives them an identity which unfortunately the disease tends to steal."

The art is on display daily at The Arbors at 2121East Prater Way in Sparks. It will be auctioned later this fall with proceeds going to support the program.
