SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY JUN 11, 2016

The Lighthouse of Manasota held its inaugural benefit “Art in the Dark” on April 16 at Michael’s On East. Approximately 200 attendees enjoyed interactive experiences with art, such as painting while wearing glasses simulating macular degeneration and sketching artwork through spoken words rather than sight. The Lighthouse partnered with local artists and art groups to create experiences, including The Ringling, Julia Hyman and Alfstad & Contemporary Gallery. The event raised more than $83,000 to support the specialized training the organization provides for the visually impaired residents of the Sarasota community. The second annual benefit will be held on Friday, March 24, 2017.
