Anne Mondro

I am a studio artist, arts & health practitioner, and professor in the University of Michigan Stamps School of Art & Design. My artwork has been shown nationally and internationally including exhibitions at Ceres Gallery, Cranbrook Art Museum, Powerhouse Museum of Science and Design, Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine, Michigan Medicine, Brigham & Women’s Hospital, Urban Institute for Contemporary Art, and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. I have permanent art pieces in the University of Michigan Hospital and the Detroit Medical Center Children’s Hospital of Michigan. My arts & health research focuses on designing and facilitating visual art programming for people living with dementia and their caregivers, with the intention of increasing social interaction, supporting learning and discovery, and building relationships. My initiatives include Artful Approach™ and Retaining Identity: Creativity and Caregiving, programs for caregivers to learn how to engage people living with dementia in visual art activities. I am the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts grant and the Family Caregiver Alliance’s 2015 Rosalinde Gilbert Innovations in Alzheimer’s Disease Caregiving Legacy Award in Creative Expression for my course Memory, Aging & Expressive Arts. I have presented at national and international conferences on creative aging and dementia care including the Association for Medical Humanities (2021), the British Society of Gerontology (2018), 9th Annual International Arts and Health Conference (2017), Culture, Health & Wellbeing International Conference (2017), and the National Center for Creative Aging (2016).
