i met indy/lafayette artist pete brown at his studio for a preview and to discuss the show which will open on october 5 at Gallery 924 at the Arts Council of Indianapolis. The show is in conjunction with BOSMA, an organization that runs support programs, education, rehabilitation, and job placement for the blind and visually impaired in the indianapolis area. Pete has worked with BOSMA on several occasions in the past, through his position at the Eiteljorg Museum in indy, and in discussion for new ways to reach new audiences, he pitched the idea of a visual art show created with the visually impaired in mind. BLIND. is what developed.

|Stevie Wonder, my favorite piece in the body of work thus far. I didn't want to give too much of him away, because he is quite a standout piece. The '2D low-relief' is giving great shadows behind the cutout images.|
