‘Shared Visions’ among art events linked to college

Benefit for foundation also slated as events in coming weeks


Is it Smooth? Soft? Solid? Ridged? Large? Small? Other?

“Shared Visions” is the title for the repeat of a popular collaboration between ceramics, painting and 3-D design students from the Colorado Center for the Blind and from Arapahoe Community College. “Shared Visions” runs through Dec. 5 at the Colorado Gallery of the Arts at ACC, in the Annex on the east side of the Littleton Campus.

Different visitors always have different reactions to any given art exhibit, but this one offers more opportunity for those with limited or no vision to experience artwork through touch.

The exhibit should expand the imaginative resources of sighted artists as they contemplate how they might want to communicate in this manner in the future. Perhaps the concept could spread to other galleries as we all become more aware of accessibility issues in our society?

Gallery hours: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays (open Tuesdays until 9 p.m.). Closed on weekends and the week of Nov. 19-23.
