On the web this week..."Please Touch The Art"

For the blind, an art gallery can be a disappointing experience...until now.

"In July 2009, the Iowa Department for the Blind unveiled a public art installation created by Colorado-based tactile artist Ann Cunningham. Spread throughout the building's first and fourth floors, the seven pieces of artwork allow those who cannot see paintings experience them through touch. "


On another note, for those of you who live in the area, don't miss out on our annual Soup Smorgasbord this Saturday, February 13 from 11 am - 1 pm to be held at the Eldon KD Center on the 119th anniversary of Grant Wood's birthday. See the press release below.
