Sinebrychoff Art Museum arranges program during the Art Beyond Sight Awareness Month

During the Art Beyond Sight Awareness Month (October 2010) museums, schools, libraries and sighted and blind people from around the world come together to jointly address the problem of making pictorial literacy and access to the world of art a reality for all blind people. Art Beyond Sight Awareness Month is an opportunity for professionals and institutions to raise public awareness about making art and culture a part of life for adults and children affected by sight loss. One aim during Awareness Month is to educate parents, teachers, school administrators, recreational counselors, librarians and museums about the benefits of art education and museum visits for children and adults with sight loss.

Sinebrychoff Art Museum in Helsinki has signed up for the third time for the Art Beyond Sight Awareness Month and arranges program called Art Beyond Sight! Taide katseen tuolla puolen.
