For the past two years, Lisa Murphy has been converting nude photographs into raised images on thin plastic pages. She has collected her work as a self-published book titled Tactile Minds.
The images are not standard pornographic fare. They depict mostly naked people dressed as elephants, bunnies, a robot and a "satanic ram." One image shows a naked woman disco dancing; she is wearing a belt of stars and a square box on her head. The cover features a vagina.
Not Really. I’m against earmarks such as this, but this project is not ridiculous. The museum will have artwork that the visually handicapped can touch while listening to audio descriptions. The author of the referenced article is trying to make the point that the congressman is wasting our money on frivolous projects, which may or may not be true. The article is misleading because he does not include the above information, as this would not serve his purpose. Secondly he uses the word “blind” instead of visual impaired simply to make the project sound ridiculous. This is a great example of yellow journalism. The Internet is full of it.Grayson wants to spend $130,000 on art gallery for blind - WDBO Local News on wdbo.com
How do you have an art gallery for the blind? And we should be spending tax payer money on this?
Against art? Because some of us think the money should come from those who want to contribute? What a strange opinion.consider this...legally blind people many times have limited vision...
why are conservatives always against art? or the outcry...dont use my taxpayers money....too bad we dont feel that way when funding wars.
