Going to an art exhibit is a visual experience, but at the Miami Art Museum they believe in art for all - including those who are losing or have lost their sense of sight. Beauty is in the hands of these beholders.
MAM put together a special "touch tour" for a group from the Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
Nelba Gonzalez is hoping this will inspire her students.
Victor Brown enjoyed it.
“I found it interesting the different sculptures, the different architecture,” Brown said.
Sarah Mekertin has lost much of her vision to glaucoma, but she can still see. She said being able to also touch the art enhanced her experience.
“You get a sensation through your hands that even if you have some sight you don't get just by looking at it," Mekertin said. "It just goes through your body and it's a very energizing feeling because you can feel the vibrations.”
