My Heart Is Not Blind is a combination of stunning photographs
and insightful audio interviews of people with visual impairments. Seven years
in the making, the exhibit was created by photographer and documentarian
Michael Nye in order to probe more deeply into the nature of and misperceptions
about blindness. Mr. Nye’s website states: “Blindness doesn’t make someone less intelligent, less
capable, less competent. Many become more courageous and determined. Perception
and adaptation are deeper than we can imagine and much more mysterious.” Leave
this exhibit with the knowledge that there are many different ways of seeing. The My Heart Is Not Blind exhibit is included in the cost
of admission to the Witte.

The Color of Blind is an interactive art show by Trina Geurra Bacon and Katherine Brown. First debuting in 2013, “The show allows visually impaired individuals, along with others with special sensory needs or challenges, to better connect with art,” explains Bacon. The exhibit showcases artwork designed especially to evoke smell, touch and taste. “Everyone should be able to fully experience art. We say ‘Yes- please touch the art!’” The Color of Blind is free and open to the public.
