Guy Cobb lives in Memphis, Tennessee and is continuing to experiment with a series of Braille paintings which incorporate tactile objects and heavily textured paints to allow the blind to interpret these works "hands-on". The series also serves as a reminder to the sighted of how many recognizable symbols and images we can see every day but cannot be seen by the blind. Christian Brothers University in Memphis will be hosting a large exhibit of Guy's paintings in the Spring of 2006.
