Blind Visionaries - Feb. 4

Blind Visionaries Live Trio

High School Matinee

Exploring the nature of sight and blindness, light and dark…and what it means to truly see, this multi-disciplinary program features images created by the blind and visually impaired photographers of the Seeing with Photography Collective and original jazz music performed live by the Daniel Kelly Trio. In addition to a demonstration of their “light painting” process, the program also includes recorded interviews with members of the Collective whose reflections upon their personal experiences with blindness were the inspiration to Kelly’s compositions.
