The Unseen Art project is creating a new opportunity for blind and visually impaired people to experience art. They are involving people from all over the world to re-create classical art paintings in 3D so that they may be touched and felt, both in exhibitions and in people's homes. 3D models of the paintings are open source and printable anywhere in the world where there's access to a 3D printer. Creating equal access for art globally is their passion and goal.
