Blind and Low-Vision Artists Translate Their 'Mind's Eye' Through Artwork

By


MILWAUKEE—An art exhibition held here last month featured the work of nine artists, some blind and some with low vision, working in a variety of media: photography, sculpture, watercolors, collage and tactile. Hosted by a coalition of non-profits in Wisconsin that support people with vision loss, “Through the Lens of Others: A Tribute to the Vision of the Mind’s Eye” was held at the Froedtert & Medical College of Wisconsin Eye Institute in conjunction with Connections in Sight.

Here are some of the works along with the artist’s name and condition. Please scroll over the images to see captions.
