Blind Visionaries is a stunning multi-media collaboration between innovative composer and pianist Daniel Kelly and The Seeing With Photography Collective - a pioneering group of blind and visually impaired photographers whose work is exhibited around the world. Using a process called "light painting," the abstract photographs transport the viewer into a unique dream world of these surreal portraits. The captivating images are projected on screen while, through recorded interviews, the photographers reflect on their personal experiences with blindness and their personal descent into a darkening world.

She and husband Gary enjoyed the theater in Chicago, and shared that joy with their children and grandchildren when they were old enough to attend. Dedicated in her memory and inspired by her passion, we hope that you too will feel Sharon’s love and excitement for entertainment throughout this beautiful theater.
