APH InSights is an annual juried competition and exhibition for artists of all ages with vision loss. International in scope, this project reflects APH’s mission to promote the independence of people who are blind and visually impaired by encouraging individuals to create original art. Around 500 entries in all types of media are received each year. Judges from Louisville’s education and art community select pieces for display at the APH Annual Meeting in October. Two of our students were prize winners and were invited to Louisville to receive their awards at the evening banquet. Artwork from entries may also be reproduced in the APH InSights Art Calendar and as images on greeting cards.
