Association for the Blind & Visually Impaired

2012 ArtPrize Venue
  • Default

People with vision loss are often overlooked in the art world. We're looking for someone who wants to expand their reach to a new audience. Your work should be accessible to people who are visually impaired. We imagine a piece of moderate size so that someone who sees by touch would be able to move about the piece and obtain a sense of the work.

Located on the corner of College SE and Cherry SE in Heritage Hill, we are offering an outdoor venue for an artist who is willing to place a piece of art that would be accessible to people who live with vision loss. The site is visible from both College and Cherry and consists of our front and side lawn area. The front lawn area is approximately 25' deep by 50' wide. The side law is approximately 30' wide by 50' deep. The four businesses located on the four corners of the intersection are ArtPrize venues.
