INDIANAPOLIS - April 19, 2019 - PRLog -- A Tactile Multi-Sensory Art Exhibition:

The Visually Impaired Preschool Services (VIPS) showcases the 2019 presentation of reVISION 2019,  a Touchable, Tactile Art Exhibition.
An exciting interactive event/art exhibition where everyone, young and old is encouraged to touch the art!

IIC Gallery at the Indiana Interchurch Center, located 1100 W. 42nd. St. Indianapolis, IN. 46208

The Exhibition runs through April 30th., 2019.

Gallery Hours: Monday through Friday's between 8:00am. to 4:30pm

Free! Open to the Public!

This unique exhibition presents works by regional artists who explore the world of art through the eyes of the visually impaired. The aim for reVISION is to transform the traditional gallery presentation to be more inclusive by having tactile, auditory and spatial experiences for blind and sighted alike.

The inclusive art exhibition was created by the Regional Director of VIPS, Meredith Howell, who's daughter, Lola, is legally blind due to a visual processing disorder that takes place in her brain. Her daughter's visual impairment prompted her to research accessibility in the arts and what she found was discouraging.

According to Howell, all of the artwork is strongly encouraged to be touched and explored by guests. The artist statements that accompany the art-pieces are written in braille and large print, as well as QR codes for audio recordings from the artists.

For sighted people who visit the exhibit, VIPS will offer sleep shades and visual impairment simulator goggles to give them the opportunity to experience the artwork by using sense other than vision.

VIPS will be happy to arrange a Tour of the Exhibition, please Contact to do so.

A portion of the proceeds from artwork sold at the exhibit will go toward critical vision-specific early intervention services that VIPS provides to infants and toddlers with blindness/low vision throughout Indiana.

*Patrons can bid on the art-pieces by going on VIPS' Facebook page.
