reVISION Art Show 2018

Imagine you are blind but you enjoy art.  How would you have access to art?  Most museums will allow you to book a special tour where you have to wear gloves to touch the art, you are instructed on what you can and cannot touch, and your sensory impairment is essentially put on display.  You are no longer just an art patron.

Opening Night

Friday, March 9th
Indiana Interchurch Center Art Gallery
6:00 - 8:00 pm

Join us for the opening of reVISION as it will be an exciting evening with wine, hors-d'oeuvres, a special guest musical performance by James Michaels and Matt Edwards from Bosma Enterprises for the Blind, and exceptional art.

Are you an artist interested in participating in reVISION?


Creating work specifically for this show, sculptors, textile artists, painters and new-media artists are encouraged to challenge both themselves and visitors to re-imagine the boundaries of art the way one experiences it.

Deadline is closed. Please contact us about submitting in 2019.

VIPS Indiana is proud to bring back reVISION, an art exhibition specifically curated for an individual with blindness/low vision.  This is the third year VIPS will be hosting the exhibition at the Indiana Interchurch Center Art Gallery in Indianapolis.  The art on display can be touched and explored--without the gloves.  Some of the art may have an auditory or olfactory component along with the tactile component.  The artist descriptions will be in braille and large print, and artist recordings will be available through QR codes.  The art will be at a reasonable height so those in wheelchairs can experience it, too.  The art on display will be available for purchase and the artists have graciously agreed to donate 50% of their proceeds back to VIPS Indiana for the children and families we serve.  We are beyond thrilled that the student artists from the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired will be participating once again this year. The students keep all of their sale money so come buy cool art of theirs!

reVISION is more than an art exhibition—it is a service to the community. Our goal is to create inclusiveness in the arts. A place where patrons who are blind can just be art patrons. Sleep shades will be available for sighted patrons so they have a chance to experience art through their other senses. We hope to spark a dialogue about creating more inclusive opportunities in cultural art organizations for individuals who are blind or visually impaired, as well as raise critical funds and awareness for VIPS Indiana.
