Altered Vision: Artists Look Beyond Sight Loss
Nashville Public Library January 15 – March 15, 2007
By the year 2020, more than 43 million Americans will suffer from cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration. Wearing glasses simulating those conditions, 14 artists stepped into their studios or behind their cameras and created art. The resulting works offer us a rare glimpse into the world of sight loss and reflect the frustration, accommodation, and compassion these artists felt during their experiences of “looking through someone else’s eyes.”
