The Arbor at Bremerton, a memory care community located in scenic Bremerton, Washington, pride themselves on scheduling regular daily activities and outings for their residents. The staff recently planned a trip to the Tacoma Glass Museum.
One of the exhibits featured glass art by the famous glass artist, Chihuly. As one can imagine, it was certainly a memorable part of the outing. Another highlight of the excursion was a gallery of Native American art re-created in glass that mimicked its original mediums. For example, there were recreations of glass blown baskets that featured basket-like textures. The masks that looked like clay were actually glass!
The residents were treated to tea and cookies before enjoying a sandblasted art project. They also had the experience of watching local artists create a work of art using glassblowing techniques.
“What a special day for our residents,” noted Stacey Serad, Community Relations Director at The Arbor at Bremerton. “No words were needed as I watched the joy and amazement on their faces.”
Stacey also noted that the staff at The Tacoma Glass Museum showed kindness and hospitality to the residents and chaperones that went above and beyond. It was a very special day the residents and staff will cherish for many years.
