State Library To Display School For The Blind Artwork

CREATED Oct 3, 2013

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee School for the Blind artwork will be displayed at the Tennessee State Library and Archives this month.

This is the fourth year TSLA has displayed art from the school to commemorate "Art Beyond Sight Awareness Month," an annual event sponsored by Art Education for the Blind, a New York-based nonprofit organization.

The exhibit is free and is located in the lobby of TSLA's building in downtown Nashville.

The library is open from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Among the items in the exhibit are sunflower pastel drawings and collages, canvas paintings, pottery pieces and award-winning photographs.

The students have been studying the work of artist Vincent Van Gogh.
