Partnering BlindArt Permanent Collection


We are delighted to announce the BlindArt Permanent Collection will be permanently housed at the Royal National College for the Blind (RNC), Hereford. RNC is a key player in European innovations in the teaching and training of learners with sight loss and the leading international Resource Centre promoting a range of services to people with sight loss and professionals working with them.

The BlindArt Collection is displayed in its own dedicated gallery space in the main building of RNC and is open to public by appointment. The Collection will be moved to a larger gallery at RNC in September 2010 where it will be open to public at all times and it will also serve as a backdrop to visiting temporary exhibitions organized by BlindArt and RNC. The Collection will be toured to other public venues to and from RNC from June 2010.
