The Frist Museum in Nashville, Tennessee, took cues from the Museum of Modern Art in New York, which started its Alzheimer's Project in 2007. The program guides people with dementia through museum exhibits and related art projects.

WPLN's Blake Farmer joined visitors with dementia at an exhibit of Asian textiles at the Frist and has our story.
