Below is a news story I found interesting. It's about an art show for blind and visually impaired artists. I have this crazy idea that someday I'd like to find a way to have an art show of the artwork of artists with Hermansky-Pudlak Syndrome or Chediak-Higashi Syndrome. I'd love to have it in a hospital to help generate awareness, or maybe even better, a traveling exhibit among hospitals. The trouble is I don't have any contacts and have no idea how to make this happen. I've found a few arts organizations I thought I'd reach out to - but I haven't yet. I'm too busy with more immediate issues.
At any rate, check out the article.
