“I Remember Better When I Paint” also tells the compelling story of Hilda Gorenstein, an artist known as Hilgos, who was left lost, agitated and uncommunicative by Alzheimer’s disease but regained a quality of life through returning to painting with the help of students from School of Art Institute of Chicago. The Hilgos Foundation now awards scholarships to students who help those suffering from memory loss, acknowledging and celebrating the astonishing impact of the arts on people with Alzheimer’s.
