Visit the Drop-In Art Room at Convention 2016!

For the fifth consecutive year, the NFB will host a drop-in art room 
at our national convention. Organized by Ann Cunningham with help 
from Debbie Kent Stein, the art room welcomes blind and sighted 
visitors of all ages and levels of experience. The room will be open 
to visitors from 1 to 8 p.m. on Friday, July 1 and Saturday, July 2.

 From 1 to 5 each day, visitors are invited to explore sculptures and 
raised drawings and to create their own tactile art, using a variety 
of materials. Evenings in the art room will be devoted to art 
exploration and discussions on art-related issues. Which programs for 
creating tactile graphics are most effective? What can practicing 
artists tell us about making art accessible? How can we ensure that 
images will be part of every blind person's life?

We all spend a lot of time at convention rushing from one event to 
another, trying to pack thirty hours of activities into each 
twenty-four-hour day. The art room is a special place where we can 
slow down, marvel, and be inspired. Please join us! Art is for everyone!
