Sarah Veliz, hanging textile sculpture
In the Witt Gallery during the week of March 26-30, is a very special exhibition by Sacramento State student Sarah Veliz. This tactile-based installation, called Touch, was created to be a hands on experience that explores the artistic possibilities for works that can be experienced by individuals with visual impairments. The artist is majoring in social work and interested in the way that art is experienced by those with disabilities, as well as how art may be made more accessible for people with visual impairments.
