Seeing with the Senses Art Exhibition

Share

Come see and even touch this new art exhibition, created by adult students from the Metropolitan Museum, drawing class called "Seeing Through Drawing."

The students all have low vision or are blind, and created many of the works while listening to verbal descriptions of major works of art. There are works in pastel, collage, tape drawing, paint, wicky stick, sand, hi marker, and printmaking. The exhibition is part of the program that took place at the Andrew Heiskell Library on Saturday, June 1st, "Seeing Through the Senses - A Celebration of Art for those with Low Vision and Blindness."

The art works will be on view for several weeks during the month of June at the Andrew Heiskell Library's first floor community room.
