Art Education for the Blind, Inc. (AEB)

AEB’s mission is to make art, art history, and visual culture accessible to people who are blind or visually impaired. Our goal is to provide and promote the tangible benefits of art education, museum visits, and art making for children and adults with sight loss – to give those who cannot see equal access to the world’s visual culture and the opportunity to experience the life-enhancing power of art.

Sic itur ad astra
“

Sic itur Ad astra is a Latin phrase meaning “thus you shall go to the stars”.

Thus one goes to the stars :  such is the way to immortality

From Wiki:  ”The phrase has origins with Virgil, who wrote sic itur ad astra (“thus you shall go to the stars”, from Aeneid book IX, line 641, spoken by Apollo to Aeneas’s young son Iulus) and opta ardua pennis astra sequi, (“desire to pursue the high (or hard to reach) stars on wings” book XII, lines 892–893, spoken by Aeneas to his foe Turnus in their combat). Another origin is Seneca the Younger, who wrote non est ad astra mollis e terris via (“there is no easy way from the earth to the stars”, Hercules Furens, line 437, spoken by Megara, Hercules’ wife).”
