The League for the Blind and Disabled partnered with the University of Saint Francis for an art exhibit that opened last week. The show called “Sensing Beauty: A Multi-Sensory Art Experience” lives up to its name.

Kristin Miller, assistant professor of public relations, helped build the partnership between the university and the League for the Blind and Disabled.

“They needed a friend-raiser, an opportunity for their donors and their consumers to interact in some way.”
