Meet Rudolph Burrell
Rudolph Burrell is a Founding Share Art Heal Artist. Rudy has Alzheimer's. He spends his week days with other seniors living with Alzheimers and memory loss at AGE of Central Texas's Adult Day Health Care facility in Austin. Next week it'll be a year ago that I first delivered art supplies to AGE.
That's the day I met Rudy. We were painting elephants with watercolors with the Mobile Art Program folks. I went from table to table spending time with the artists. Rudy's painting was vibrant and colorful. It was obvious he enjoyed creating art. His painting was proudly displayed on the bulletin board at the end of the day with a few others.
Rudy has been at AGE of Central Texas every time I've stopped by over the last year. He's always remembered me and had a big smile as we talk about art and life. At our 1st Year Celebration September 13th at Art for the People Gallery we were honored to show this mixed media piece by Rudy and we are proud Rudy is a Founding Share Art Heal Artist.
