Blind Artists

Blind Artists

No, “blind artist” is not an oxymoron. In fact, there are organizations that cater specifically to blind visual artists. Researchers from Harvard recently studied the brain activity of a Turkish artist who has been blind since birth. They were looking to see what happened to his visual cortex, the part of the brain that is stimulated when sighted people are looking at objects. These researchers found that while the artist was painting, his visual cortex lit up with activity as though he were seeing! So if you’re interested in the arts and have visual impairments, take heart. There are plenty of artists who have blazed a trail before you.
