Although he was 300-plus miles away in a Nashville facility, country star Glen Campbell's presence was felt when about 25 of his relatives recently gathered with 225 others for the dedication of a new Alzheimer's and dementia care center, Memory Care of Little Rock at Good Shepherd.
(the) special piece of commissioned art that will serve as the main feature of the center's Glen Campbell Art Gallery...was created by area artist Stephano, who lost his father to Alzheimer's. The gallery will feature artwork by residents and Arkansas artists who work with the center's art therapy program.
Kim Campbell, wife of Delight native and Country Music Hall of Fame member Glen Campbell, will join in next month's opening of Memory Care of Little Rock on the Good Shepherd campus. The 74-bed Alzheimer's and dementia-care facility will be dedicated at 11 a.m. Dec. 17.
Campbell will talk about her husband's Alzheimer's and how it has affected their family. She also will discuss the role that art -- both musical and visual -- has played throughout his illness.
The dedication will include the facility's Glen Campbell Art Gallery, and feature the unveiling of a special piece of art that will be the gallery's center point. The gallery will feature artwork by residents and Arkansas artists who work with the center's art therapy program.
