Inclusive Art Welcomes All SubjectsArtist Yvonne Shortt is visually impaired. She has noticed a distinct lack of representation of people like her in works of art. Though many museums and art worlds are trying to become more inclusive with specific programs allowing people to touch works of art or experience art in a different manner, there are few art subjects who are blind or visually impaired.
About her work, Yvonne says, "I want my niece to know she's not alone. I want to know I'm not alone. There are millions who use a cane or dog as guides and I'm painting for them, those who come in contact with them, and myself."
Her work can be seen in New York.
