Forget Me Not Garden

The Alzheimer's Glass and Iron team planted a Forget Me Not garden in collaboration with Coral Lambert's Volcano Furnace performance on June 23rd, as part of the 7th International Contemporary Cast Iron Arts Conference at the Pedvāle Open-Air Art Museum in Latvia. During the Mid Summer's night of fire and iron performance, Haley Jelinek, Rosemarie Oakman and Elise Betrus invited audience member to participate in the Forget Me Not Garden. Participants planted seeds after the first 300lb molten iron tap from the Volcano Furnace. The seeds planted during the performance help us honor all those lost, suffering or affected by Alzheimer's Disease.
