Andrew Heiskell Library: Art Exhibition and Timely Links
Creating visual art is not the first thing most people consider when thinking of people who are blind or who have visual difficulties, but there are many such artists and photographers who challenge that perception every day. The Andrew Heiskell Library was pleased to host an exhibition of artwork by students who have visual impairments, running from June 14 through June 18.
A reception, complete with refreshments, was well attended on opening night, and the exhibition drew a steady stream of visitors through the week. The photograph here shows some of the artists, whose class made a special visit on Thursday, June 16, to experience their work on display.
