Blind Spot: A Matter of Perception
February 18 – May 23, 2017

This exhibit will feature ten abstract paintings from the Massillon Museum collection, each translated–by co-curators Barry Stirbens and Jan Stirbens, community members who are blind–into sonic iPad touch-screen apps, designed by Classic Interactions.  Tactile models created by David McDowell along with typewritten and Braille labels will explain the art.  Sighted visitors can borrow macular degeneration simulation goggles to gain a sense of the exhibition experience for patrons with low vision.
