At 650 N. Andrews Avenue in Fort Lauderdale, Florida a mural has been made to allow visually-impaired visitors to experience all its majesty without the limitation of sight. Bird calls and citrus scents greet the pedestrians, as do tactile raised and textured sections for touch which allow passerby’s of the Lighthouse of Broward building, a non-profit group that provides education and training for people who are blind or visually impaired, a multi-sensory experience. The mural was created by more than 150 volunteers and designed by artist Ernesto Maranje. Make sure to click the video link below to get the full experience – it’s truly beautiful.
