An art show for the visually impaired
Meredith Howell’s five year old daughter lives with significant sight loss. As an art lover, Meredith found it unacceptable that her daughter would be unable to experience art, so she decided to do something about it.


She came up with the idea behind reVISION, “a tactile, auditory and spatial experience” that allows visitors to use senses beyond sight to enjoy the works. The art display has been created for, and by, people with visual impairments to ensure that others who are blind or visually impaired can fully experience the displays.


17 artists from a variety of mediums are presented, and if visitors aren’t touching the artwork, they are doing it wrong!
