Memory Arts Bistro
Memory Arts Bistro is a monthly series of free afternoon arts events for those with memory loss, their caregivers and families. The program focuses on interactive arts, socializing and connecting memories with the arts.
Memory Arts Bistro events held once a month at Birt’s Bistro on the Benevilla campus at the Hellen & John M. Jacobs Independence Plaza, 16752 N. Greasewood Street, Surprise.
Benevilla’s Memory Arts Bistro is supported in part by the Arizona Commission on the Arts, which receives support from the State of Arizona and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Birt’s Bistro also serves as a bookstore for every customer looking for a new read. All books are donated by the community and sold at the affordable price of only $1. All proceeds are donated back to Benevilla to help fun the many Benevilla programs and services providing care and support for older adults, disabled adults, children and families within our community.
The Birt’s Bistro Boutique is stocked full of beautiful pieces of art, jewelry, accessories and more from local artists. Frequently replenished, the Boutique is the perfect place to shop for unique gifts after a delicious meal at Birt’s. All sales made at the boutique directly effect the success of the Benevilla organization and mission.
