Helen Keller Art Show of Alabama

April 12, - May 28, 2024

For over a decade, WMA has hosted the Helen Keller Art Show of Alabama, an exhibition of work created by Alabama students with visual impairments, blindness, and deafness. The exhibition is juried statewide and travels from Birmingham to Mobile. Select pieces are also shown internationally. The Helen Keller Art Show of Alabama emphasizes creativity, color, and tactile media in the arts. The winning entry for the grand prize is selected by the Helen Keller Festival Board to receive the Patty Johnson Award, and will remain in the permanent collection at Ivy Green in Tuscumbia, Alabama, the birthplace of Helen Keller.

Don’t miss your chance to view these unique works by a group of courageous and talented students. The Helen Keller Art Show of Alabama will be on view from April 12th through May 25th in the Coleman Gallery.
