Jan Perez (senior staff member at Spring Arbor of Salisbury) spoke of the profound positive effects from the ongoing Virginia Museum of Fine Art traveling exhibit “What’s So Radical About Impressionism”. Ms Perez confirms the feelings of the entire Spring Arbor staff. It was a indeed a pleasure to see the spirits of our residents, family, friends, and the general community lifted by the exhibit. None enjoyed the exhibit more than those Spring Arbor residents who continue to paint to this very day. We witnessed an undeniable increase in social interaction by our assisted living residents and an observable eagerness to share their reflective reminisces motivated by the art. Over the past two weeks, staff and residents alike took a “step back in time” thanks to the Virginia Museum of Fine Art. We are all most grateful.
