Watch this blind man experience his portrait through art.

What would it be like for a blind person to “see” their portrait for the first time? Artist Andrew Myers discovered the answer through his fascinating art. Recently featured in The Huffington Post, Examiner, and Vice’s The Creators ProjectPlease Touch the Art, a recently released documentary by Cantor Fine Art, focuses on the unique relationship between Myers and George Wurtzel, a blind craftsman at the Enchanted Hills Camp for the Blind. Made of nearly 4,000 individually painted screws arranged to match Wurtzel’s features, Myers created a tactile portrait of Wurtzel.
