'Collections from Sundown'

Photo exhibition offers artistic, intimate perspective on dementia

by Chrissi Angeles

Palo Alto native and artist Kija Lucas' "Collections from Sundown" exhibition is a deeply personal one. Each photograph tells a piece of a poignant story about her grandmother, Amelia's, experience with Alzheimer's disease and a related set of symptoms called sundowner's syndrome. The collection of images, featuring handwritten notes and piles of cherished possessions, is currently on display at the Palo Alto Art Center, as a part of the center's "Summer of Photography" series.
