Event description

Description

Join Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind (CLB) and Low Vision Specialists of MD & VA (LVS) for the Opening Night of our exhibit, Beyond Sight. This exhibition showcases the creative capabilities of local artists including Aaron Cox, Lawrence Harrison, and Pamela Steed, who are visually impaired. Additionally, hear live poetry performed by Dave Steele (The Blind Poet), an award-winning blind author of more than 700 poems and songs dealing with the fears and struggles associated with vision loss. Our hope is that this project will inspire viewers and dismantle the common belief that vision plays a crucial role in the creation of ‘visual art’.
