ARTzheimer’s Exhibition

Date posted: 13 November 2014

ARTzheimer’s is a unique art exhibition detailing one man’s journey through Alzheimer’s. Dublin born artist Leo Casey was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease about eight years ago. The curator of Artzheimer’s, Eimear Farrell, became great friends with Leo Casey during her work with The Alzheimer Society of Ireland. Their friendship grew over their mutual love of art. Sadly, Leo passed away three months ago. This exhibition is a testimonial of Leo’s journey through, what can only be described as a debilitating and most cruel disease. But like everything in life, where there is darkness, there is also light. Artzheimer’s opening night is on the 17 November at 7pm and will run until 5 December in the historical surroundings of Aras Chronain Irish Cultural Centre, Clondalkin, Dublin 22. Read More
