Profiles Interviews

Arts and Disabilities Special

The WFIU Arts Desk presents stories that were broadcast over the last year about people in Indiana living with disabilities.

Marian Pettengill leads a low-vision tour at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Tour participants Rhett Salisbury and Mary Stores are at left.

The thing I think that you need to know as well as anybody else is that we are people, too. Even though we don’t see art the same way you do, we do see it.

The stories also report on the innovative ways that people are able to enjoy art forms previously off-limits to them. The reports were produced with funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. Yaël Ksander hosts.
