Join Artist and caregiver, Safi Alia Shabaik, as she shares her father’s end-of-life journey with Parkinson’s disease, dementia and sundowner's syndrome. This event will also include conversations with experts and people living with Parkinson’s on topics such as family caregiving, creativity and Parkinson’s, end-of-life care, and dignified death.

The images in this exhibit and the program discussion may generate a wide variety of reactions and emotions. It is one family’s journey and does not reflect everyone’s experience. Our goal is to bring awareness and understanding, through art and storytelling, to topics that may not always be discussed.

There is no charge to attend, but registration is required.

This event is part of the Artist’s exhibit that includes photographs, audio recordings and objects documenting her father’s end-of-life journey with Parkinson’s, dementia and sundowner's syndrome. The exhibit opens on Saturday, April 1 at 3 p.m. and continues through April 30 at 1100 Florence Gallery in Evanston.

Gallery Hours: Wednesdays & Fridays 5-8 p.m., Saturdays & Sundays 12-5 p.m.

This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
