Faces Tell Students’ Stories of Overcoming Obstacles

 
 

Join us Monday, January 28, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport in the baggage claim area to celebrate the FACES Art Exhibit. Students of the Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision will be available to talk about their art. Students recently worked with the creative staff at the Telfair Museum to create a project where blind/vision impaired students could create pieces of art that would symbolize their lives and achievements. Each face is designed with different earthly colors, unique embellishments, and a story to represent their faith and accomplishments.

Thanks to the partnerships between the Telfair Museum, Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and the Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision, The Faces Art Exhibit is currently on display at the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport in the baggage claim area near the Visitor/Information Center. The objective of the exhibit is to better help people understand the challenges and achievements of people who are blind and visually impaired.

The Savannah Center for Blind and Low Vision is Southeast Georgia’s fully accredited, community facility providing rehabilitation services for individuals of all ages who are blind or visually impaired.

Since 1963, the Center has grown to serve as a model of innovative services throughout 29 counties in the southeast portion of the state and in some areas of South Carolina. The mission of the Center is to offer comprehensive services to promote independence with dignity and confidence for those who are blind or visually impaired. All services are customized to meet the individual’s personal goals toward adjustment for vision loss.

The Center operates on grants, donations, and the generous support from the community. To learn more visit our website: www.SavannahCBLV.org .
