On Thursday, May 17 at 111 Minna Gallery, many local established and emerging nonprofit leaders will come together for an evening of social networking presented by the Craigslist Foundation, interactive art presented by Exploratorium and SFZero.org, DJs, and an exhibition of photographs taken by blind teenagers from the bold new book by Tony Deifell, Seeing Beyond Sight (Chronicle Books).
With its ambitious, seemingly paradoxical premise, Seeing Beyond Sight challenges our definitions of art, vision, and perception and what it really means to see. The salon will be an experiential extension of this unusual art project that will tap all of your senses. Special guests: some of the blind photographers featured in book.
