With nearly 285 million people who are visually impaired in the world, an artist has begun to create more artworks that can be interpreted through touch.

Sculptor Ann Cunningham created an exhibit consisting of artwork created for or by visually impaired individuals for the National Federation of the Blind convention.

Visitors are encouraged to touch the sculptures and engravings, many of which depict animated action sequences of animals.

According to Cunningham, compared to viewing a work of art, the act of touch conveys different meanings and interpretations.

The artists participating in the convention exhibit hope all visitors can appreciate how human perception impacts art.
