As a leading nonprofit organization fighting vision loss, Lighthouse International is pleased to partner with Premier Exhibitions Inc., presenters of the Dialog in the Dark exhibit in New York City. Lighthouse International experts have provided information and expertise to the exhibit and Premier Exhibitions is asking its visitors to support the important work Lighthouse does to fight vision loss through prevention, treatment and empowerment.
Dialog in the Dark is an hour long experience where blind or visually impaired guides lead visitors through a series of New York City environments, highlighted by city-centric scents, sounds, temperatures, and textures, in complete darkness. Exhibit-goers will experience NYC and visit many well-known landmarks without the sense of sight.
Dialog in the Dark will forever change your perception of what it means to be blind or have low vision.
Visit Dialog in the Dark New York City at 11 Fulton Street in South Street Seaport. The exhibit opens August 20, 2011 and runs throughout 2012. To purchase tickets, visit www.dialognyc.com.
