Welcome to the 2020 APH InSights Art Virtual Exhibition!

Since 1992, the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) has hosted an international art contest for artists of all ages, who all happen to be blind.

Usually, we install an exhibit of the award winners, during the Annual Meeting of the Ex Officio Trustees of APH, hosted in Louisville every October. But this year is a little different!

Not only are we taking the exhibit to you, but you can also appreciate all the artwork that was submitted for this season, download an entry form, and meet our esteemed art jurors.

We hope you enjoy this virtual art experience. And if you do, please share this website on your social media.

Thank you so much for your patience. It’s been an incredibly challenging summer, but I believe so much in the InSights Program, and hope you will enjoy the tremendous efforts from the small, amateur team of folks who helped out.

The Virtual Exhibit Halls are open! (October 7, 2020)

The galleries for the 2020 Exhibition are now live at The Exhibit page. Visit your favorite artist, or just browse and be inspired. It’s still a work in progress, but it’s all so good!

Meet the 2020 Art Jurors

We were exceptionally lucky to have the panel of jurors that we had this year. The job of an InSights Art juror is deceptively challenging, but this year, even moreso. Meet the extraordinary professionals who selected this year’s wonderful artwork, at the Meet the 2020 Jurors page.
