Art Style Preferences of Nursing Home Residents: Research Findings and Implications

By Martin Sundel, Rosa M. Garrett

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), 1992

This study investigated art style preferences of cognitively impaired and cognitively nonimpaired residents of a Jewish nursing home. A slide test was used to determine subject preferences among four art styles. Both groups preferred realistic over abstract art. The findings suggest that realistic art is the most appropriate art style for Jewish nursing home environments if resident preferences are considered.
