Jill Wells Fellowship
Jill Wells’s Work With The Harkin Institute
Made to Touch: Art + Accessibility Event
Jill Wells discussed the insight she gained by bringing part of her FEEL exhibit to Harkin Summit Belfast, sponsored by Bravo Greater Des Moines. This exhibit focused on making art more accessible through the use of tactile elements. The research done at Harkin Summit Belfast is just the beginning of what Wells hopes to investigate through the Blackboard Sensory Art Project, which aims to create more inclusive and representational modes of working through the arts. These would be developed and researched by doing interdisciplinary art workshops with individuals across the disability spectrum.
