Helen Keller Art Show of Alabama
The 2020 Helen Keller Art Show of Alabama was featured at the Alabama Center for the Art July 8 through August 26. The exhibit is a traveling juried art show that displays artwork created by students throughout Alabama who have visual impairments, blindness, and/or deaf-blindness.
Children who participate in the show use various media to create one-of-a-kind masterpieces. The arts are included in the students’ academic curriculum in areas such as the development of communication skills utilizing visual and tactical abilities, math, science, reading, and leisure-time activities. This year’s exhibit will feature 40 unique pieces of art that can be purchased for a donation starting at $100.00. The funds collected help with the costs of framing, the opening reception, scholarships, and summer workshops.
