Touch This Art! The Book release. Aztec Calendar Stone, Arte Al Toque, la Piedra Solar azteca
Please note, this event has expired.
Touch This Art is an art for the blind project. The art exhibit lasts a few days, a book lasts forever! Come share with us the book release, touch the art (of course), be part of several “first in Texas” and perhaps a few “first in the world”
A very limited edition artist book, of handmade cast paper, in high relief, each plate being page-size versions of the art displayed in the Touch This Art / Arte Al Toque exhibit.
The big idea is that art for the blind is VERY rare. Touch this art is the first EVER independent art for the blind exhibit in Texas. An exhibit comes and goes, a book remains.
10 copies will be made, to be donated to blind education initiatives in Austin and elsewhere. The book has bilingual Braille, English Spanish,View more
Free Admission, but you are welcome to donate toward the books being donated – your name will be added to each page, or book.
Donations are NOT required to participate of the event, no table across the entrance, etc.
Please come, help us share, an art-for-the-blind book is a unique event, none since 2014 worldwide, and a bilingual one, first time in the world!
