The Helen Keller Art Show of Alabama is a juried art show displaying artwork created by Alabama students throughout the state with visual impairments, blindness and or deaf blindness. The arts are included in the children's academic curriculum in areas such as the development of communication skills including both visual and tactical abilities, math, science, reading and leisure time activities. Educators are encouraged to incorporate the arts into their curriculum, this developing a much stronger foundation in child development.
The Helen Keller Art Show of Alabama has been hosted by the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and UAB Vision Science Research Center and Education Outreach Module for the past 18 years. This partnership and collaboration demonstrates our desire to promote diversity, awareness and social equality for individuals with disabilities.
The Museum's hours are Tuesday - Friday from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
