BLIND AMBITION: Artist who lost sight, hearing teaches Dreyfoos students

The moment it happened was when one student asked, “What if…?”

What if there were such a thing like a fine art museum where you could 
touch all the pieces? Where looking at the exhibits wasn’t nearly as 
important as interacting with them?

Where you could go room to room and let the artists speak through their 
work and make your literally feel what they felt? Touch it. Smell it. 
Hear it. Taste it, even.

And finally, they got to this critical understanding, the point of why 
they make art: What if to experience art you never have to see it, at all?

emotional, compositional and intuitive meaning.
