Visually impaired/blind K-12 students from across the state have their artwork on display at the State Library's Talking Book Services student art gallery. According to Pamela Davenport, Director of the Library's Talking Book Services, "The idea to display student artwork was a result of a joint venture with the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind and will promote and educate the public about artwork of blind and visually impaired students in South Carolina."
The artwork on display includes wall hangings and sculptures. The gallery's aim is to encourage and provide access to art for visually impaired/blind people.
The public is invited to a reception to officially open the installation of new artwork in the gallery on Wednesday, October 21, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at 1430 Senate Street, Columbia, SC.
