The annual Helen Keller Art Show of Alabama is a traveling juried art exhibit displayed throughout the state. The show is open to Alabama students who have visual impairments, blindness, and or deaf blindness. The artists are of various ages attending public, private, residential, and home schools.

The show provides artists an opportunity to showcase their special talents and abilities. This year’s art show began at the Shelby County Arts Council, 105 West College Street, Columbiana, Alabama.

Children who participated in the show used various mediums to create one-of-a-kind masterpieces. The arts are included in the children’s academic curriculum to assist in the development of communication skills utilizing both visual and tactical media. Art is also included as part of their math, science, reading, and leisure time activities. The artwork is unique with an emphasis on creativity, color, and tactile media.

Students, parents, and loved ones gathered at the SCAC on January 21, 2024 for the opening reception and awards ceremony of the HKAS. If you weren’t able to see the show in person, check out the virtual gallery tour video below and see the photos from the opening taken by William A. Yarbrough.
