What is Art in the Dark?

Art in the Dark is a powerful artistic experience, inviting you into a world of sensitivity you may never have experienced, leading you through a unique journey in the dark. Guests are encouraged to create a mixed media mosaic while blindfolded to experience vision loss first hand. The evening’s proceeds support research into gene, stem cell and pharmaceutical based therapies for blinding retinal degenerative diseases, including macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa, which affect more than 10 million Americans.

*ABOUT THE FOUNDATION FIGHTING BLINDNESS

The Foundation Fighting Blindness was established in 1971 by a passionate group of families driven to find treatments and cures for inherited retinal diseases that were affecting their loved ones. At that time, little was known about these blinding retinal degenerative diseases. Very little research was being done, and there were no clinical trials for potential treatments.

The Foundation’s goal was clear and focused: To drive the research that would lead to preventions, treatments, and vision restoration for the spectrum of degenerative retinal diseases, specifically macular degeneration – including age related macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, Usher syndrome, Stargardt disease and Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA). Together these conditions affect more than 10 million Americans and millions more throughout the world.

Today, the Foundation Fighting Blindness is the world’s leading private funder of retinal disease research. That funding has been a driving force behind the progress toward cures, including the identification of more than 270 genes linked to retinal disease, and the launch of over 40 clinical trials for potential treatments.

On an annual basis, the Foundation Fighting Blindness and the Foundation’s Clinical Research Institute fund more than 87 research grants. The research projects are conducted by more than 109 research investigators at 70 institutions, eye hospitals, and universities in the United States. The Foundation funding extends internationally to laboratories in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, England, Finland, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, and Switzerland.
