Experience Art Like Never Before with How I See It: A Sensory Touch Exhibit in Santa Barbara
NO TOUCHING–It’s a message you’ve probably seen at every art museum you’ve ever been to. But what if you went to a gallery where you were not only allowed to touch the art, you were encouraged to? That’s exactly how a new exhibition in Santa Barbara works. “How I See It” at Santa Barbara’s Art Fund Gallery is based entirely on the sense of touch.
“How I See It,” a sensory touch exhibition includes a collection of 3-dimensional works from local artists that are best experienced by using your hands. The aim of “How I See It” is to provide a great art experience for the visually impaired, but even fully sighted people can get a lot out of this unique show. The exhibition is held at the Arts Fund Gallery in Santa Barbara’s notable Funk Zone Wednesday through Sunday from 12–5pm until September 5, 2015.
“How I See It” is curated by Chalk4Peace CEO John Aaron and features works from the following local artists:
- Bud Bottoms
- Beth Amine
- Ron Robertson
- Oscar Bucher
- Trenton Rossi
- John Iwerks
- Susan Van Horsen
- Adelaide Ortega
- Ishmiel Lounsbury
- Alejandra Tasha
- The Sacred Space
