A Milwaukee-based foundation is hoping to make an impact on people in Northcentral Wisconsin with Alzheimer's.

The Woodson Art Museum in Wausau is one of five museums in the state to receive a $6,500 grant from the Helen Bader Foundation.

The money will go toward a program that allows Alzheimer's patients and caregivers to create art together.

The curator of education, Erin Narloch says the idea was originally created at the museum of modern art in new york.

"We'll be looking at art, talking about art looking for lucid moments and having a quality experience between the caregiver and an individual with Alzheimer's."

Narloch and another educator will head to New York for 2 days of training.

The program is set to begin in early 2010.
