11/2/06: Art and Alzheimer's

William Utermohlen, 1998
The painter William Utermohlen chronicled his own descent into Alzheimer's through a series of self-portraits from 1995 to 2000.

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The French painter and sculpture Edgar Degas said, "Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." But when art is used to educate and encourage conversation about an issue, how does the artist tackle a subject in his or her own genre? Thursday on RadioWest, Doug is joined by a choreographer, a novelist and an art historian who have all been thinking about Alzheimer's Disease. It's a conversation about memory, about love, and about the power of art to reflect and to heal.
