In celebration of visual awareness and Art Beyond Sight Awareness month, each October the Dallas Museum of Art offers a variety of programming that includes hands-on activities, gallery discussions, art-making experiences, and artist demonstrations that focus on ways to experience art using senses other than vision.
Artist John Bramblitt, who was featured on the CBS Evening News leading a program at the DMA, is often a special guest instructor for Art Beyond SIght programs, discussing his process as a painter who is blind.
