The Great American Eclipse, Audio Described
MindsEye’s Vision: Art (and the Great American Eclipse) Is for Everyone
Saint Louis, MO – August 17, 2017 - Everyone is talking about the Great American Eclipse and where they’re going to go to see it, but how does someone who is visually-impaired or blind experience this once in a lifetime event? Audio description allows people who are visually impaired to take full advantage of theater productions, art shows, museum exhibits, and all of life’s moments. It’s a similar idea to sign language interpreter services for the deaf.
MindsEye will go LIVE Monday, August 21st from 1PM – 2PM on Facebook and ON AIR to broadcast the Audio Description of the much-anticipated Solar Eclipse during The Missouri Council of the Blind's "Watch and Listen Party." The description will focus on the science of the eclipse and (of course!) the visual elements as the eclipse passes over the city and we experience 56 seconds of totality.
The Experience of a Lifetime
The Great American Solar Eclipse has come and gone, but the memories of this amazing phenomenon will be held in the hearts of everyone who experienced it. MindsEye joined forces with Missouri Council of the Blind (MCB) on Monday, August 21st to celebrate the solar eclipse at their offices in Saint Louis during their “Watch and Listen Party.” MCB threw a fantastic event with over twenty people attending this fellowship of the sun and moon; guests shared their excitement and chowed down on a lunch of fried chicken with sides of potato salad and hot rolls.
A group of about twenty people stare up towards the sky as they stand on a black asphalt parking between two brick buildings. Many of the people wear audio description listening devices and eclipse glasses.
