Every 67 seconds someone in the US develops Alzheimer’s. It is the 6th leading cause of death and more than 5 million Americans are living with it today. There is a good chance that a member of your family or a friend is dealing with Alzheimer’s. Len Schwartz founded “Art for ALZ” in 2015 as a tribute to his father, Michel Schwartz, a prolific artist, inventor and designer, who suffered from and eventually succumbed to the ravages of this insidious disease. “Over the course of just seven years, I watched as my dad went from brilliant artist and designer to one who could not sign his own name.” Last the Carriage Barn Arts Center joined the effort to raise money for Alzheimer’s research, while sharing the work of local artists, some of whom are currently battling the disease or supporting someone who is.
