Lewis Bernard Young
A McIntosh County native and 1991 graduate of McIntosh County Academy, up and coming artist Lewis Bernard Young has been legally blind since birth. Since discovering his unexpected artistic abilities, art has become an important and unique tool of expression on his journey through life. The exhibit will be on display through the end of March.
Lewis has attended several schools to help him deal with blindness in his daily life, including Savannah Association for the Blind, Florida Division of Blind Services, and Daytona School for the Blind & Visually Impaired. Through the years, he found that art has been a therapy for the day to day struggles and challenges he continues to face daily.
Lewis’s collection of brightly colored, sharply contrasted works celebrates the uniqueness of his accomplishments and his artistic expression, and serve as reminders for us to appreciate the beauty of art and the artistic experience.
