Immutable Passion: An Artist’s Life with Vascular Dementia

Dee Hansen and Susan Hansen Staves

When vascular dementia took its hold on Harry Hansen, an award-winning artist and art professor, the disease stole much of his identity. After a hiatus from artistic creation, his wife and daughter inspired him to use art as a therapeutic method to regain a creative and intellectual quality of life that lay dormant for half a decade.


Wednesday, November 12, 7-9 p.m.
