ART in the Dark
About the Event
Have you ever imagined how a blind of visually impaired person interprets art? Imagine no more!
Wearing blindfolds, you will touch, hear, taste, and smell diverse art forms created by local artists – then remove the blindfold. How did your imagination and insight compare to the art? The evening will culminate with a SENSORY EXPLOSION that includes food tastings, cocktails, entertainment by visually impaired guitarist Islay Rodriguez and Urban Gypsy and a creative silent auction – all to raise funds for Lighthouse for the Blind of the Palm Beaches.
Each sensory experience tour will be led by volunteer docents from the Norton Museum of Art.
