The LightHouse for the Blind Gallery is an avenue to highlight the vast depths of creativity and talent in our community, through a series of rotating exhibits by blind artists. The gallery, which resides in the lobby of 1155 Market St., has held dynamic mosaic pieces, photography and multimedia art, and rotates about twice a year. Besides providing aesthetically poignant and culturally impactful art, we aim to challenge conventions of blind ability and ambition through the work on display.
If you are a blind or visually impaired artist, or know someone who is, and would like to show their work in our gallery, please contact Jennifer Sachs at JSachs@lighthouse-sf.org.
