BlindArt Collection Donated to Moorfields Eye Hospital

BlindArt – a charity which promotes artists; both sighted and visually impaired, to showcase work which encourages the participation of visually impaired people in the visual arts has announced that its BlindArt Collection will be housed at the Moorfields Eye Hospital in London from October 2012. Moorfields was founded in 1804 and is the oldest and one of the largest centres for ophthalmic treatment, teaching and research in the world. BlindArt continues its work through its collaboration with Moorfields Arts Project to inspire the visually impaired community and dispel the notion that sight is essential to creating or enjoying exceptional art.

The collection will be unveiled on 11 October 2012 to celebrate World Sight Day.
