Art Matters  Music and Dance
Tuesday, 1/23/2018 2:00 PM-3:00 PM
Briarwood Continuing Care Retirement Community: Birches Auditorium, 65 Briarwood Circle, Worcester, MA - Free and Open to the Public

The human brain is an amazing thing. We use visual images to communicate with one another as a species. We look at images with our eyes, but pictures can connect us to our other senses as well;
sound, touch, even taste & smell. We hear the music, feel the movement and can remember events in our lives with all of our senses, just by looking. Join us for some sensory recall, as we look at images that let
us listen, dance and connect to the world and our own lives.

For more information, e-mail amthomas@briarwoodsl.com or call 508-852-9007.
