Katie Caron + The Temple Evening Lecture: Sensory Advantage

May 2, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

6:30pm, Tuesday May 2nd
Featuring Temple Artist Resident Katie Caron and, local change agents, Ann Cunningham – tactile
artist and teacher at the Colorado Center for the Blind, and artist Nathan Abels.

Learn how tactile art can serve those who are blind or visually impaired. In 2016, students from the Arapahoe Community College teamed up with the Colorado Center for the Blind to create art that addresses the sensory experience that art can offer.

Artists and Professors Katie Caron and Nathan Abels will discuss how their classes created the exhibition Shared Visions for the Arapahoe Community College.

Introducing PlatteForum’s new series of events, which promote an equitable society by challenging injustice and valuing diversity through art.

We are proud to be the anchor agency of The Temple, a contemporary artists’ haven in the River North Art District of Denver, home to more than 30 professional artists and creative businesses. We pair-up creatives and studio artists from The Temple with the rabble-rousing change agents of our great city to show how we can make socially just communities.

Generously supported by the Bonfils Stanton Foundation
