A Tactile Art Experience for the Blind

Each year as part of the Houston Artcar Weekend the artcars perform an outreach to places where there are people who might not otherwise be able to experience the Artcar Parade firsthand. It's called The Main Street Drag and it takes the artcars out to schools in impoverished areas, senior centers and most importantly for Bonnie Blue, the Lighthouse, a residence for the blind. "I always volunteer to be on the route that goes to The Center and The Lighthouse" Bonnie says. She loves showing the residents the various sculptural features and watching their reactions as they use theirĀ  hands to see the car. "This is the best part of artcar weekend for me." Keep spreading smiles across the miles.
