Gala Art Gallery Showing a Huge Success!

Cognitive Dynamics President Dr. Daniel Potts, Advisory Board member Dr. Meril Platzer, and Mrs. Lester Potts

The watercolor art of Lester Potts was displayed at the David Streets Galleries ( on Novemeber 5 in collaboration between Cognitive Dynamics Foundation and the American Academy of Neurology. Attended by some 200 art enthusiasts, celebrities and philanthropists, this event helped to raise awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and the expressive arts therapies to improve quality of life and foster dignity.

Cognitive Dynamics Foundation wishes to thank Dr. Meril Platzer, without whose idea and grassroots advocacy efforts this event would not have taken place. In addition we wish to thank David Streets and Barbara Lazaroff, as well as the American Academy of Neurology and our corporate sponsors.

It is our hope that we will be able to garner support for our first initiative, “Art to Life”, in partnership with the University of Alabama Honors College. This initiative will use expressive arts therapies to tease out the life stories of impoverished Alzheimer’s patients in the Blackbelt region of Alabama, and preserve the stories as therapy for the patients, keepsakes for the familes, and as a national treasure. There will be more posts forthcoming about this important project!
