Sensing Beauty Artwork you can see, hear, smell, taste, and touch - a fully accessible gallery experience. This student-led art exhibition will challenge the perception of beauty and art. “Sensing Beauty” is a service-learning partnership with The League (for the Blind and Disabled) and students at the University of Saint Francis School of Creative Arts. Students interviewed people with visual disabilities to better understand their perception of beauty for this project. Local and student photographers captured images of beauty inspired by the interviews. The gallery includes a 3-D printed photograph from 3DPhotoWorks in New York. 3DPhotoWorks delivers tactile find art printing to the blind and sight impaired. Along with student work, the gallery will also feature photographs from professional photographers, Karen Thompson, Jeffrey Crane, Theresa Thompson and Cara Lee Wade.
