Experiencing Art Through Touch

We had some very special visitors at The Galleries in March. Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation brought a group of visually-impaired adults to our Capturing Light exhibition. These photos show how even when a person cannot see art, they can still experience it through touch! They were allowed to touch some pieces (once oils were removed from their hands with wipes). They relied on touch to examine pieces from Mark Bettis (Golden Field painting) and glass pieces from Mira Woodworth.
