Virginia Jacko, President and CEO of Miami Lighthouse for the Blind and Founder of the Miami Lighthouse Academy, shared her joy: “Having our Miami Lighthouse Academy students participate in this activity was heartwarming. Their enthusiasm and creativity were a testament to the inclusive environment we are committed to fostering, reinforcing Miami Lighthouse's teachings that 'It's Possible to See ART Without Sight.' We eagerly anticipate seeing attendees at the 'Bunnies & Beyond' event on December 5th wear these masks, thus elevating the artistry of these exceptional children and seamlessly integrating them into the fabric of Miami Art Week."
