Talking Books Services Announces Student Art Gallery

Talking Book Services Library Announces Student Art Gallery

Columbia, SC - Visually impaired/blind K-12 students from across the
state will soon have their artwork on display at the South Carolina
State Library's Talking Book Services Library. According to Pamela
Davenport, "The idea to display student artwork was a result of
conversations 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 will include wall hangings and sculpture. The
gallery's aim is to promote and provide access to art for visually
impaired/blind people. Touching the artwork will be encouraged to
sighted as well as visually impaired visitors.

The public is invited to a ribbon cutting and reception to open the
gallery on Wednesday, March 12, from 10:30am to noon at 1430 Senate
Street, Columbia, SC.
