Show Chair, Alice Lea Tasman says the works are produced in classes held at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

“They can show their works and people buy these things and so they are making their own way in life being blind or visually impaired and it’s a wonderful thing it’s a testimony not only to them but it’s a great outreach for our hospital,” Tasman says.

The pieces are on display on the 8th floor at Wills Eye Institute in the 8-hundred block of Walnut Street.

All proceeds go to the artist.
