The Unseen Art project is a cleverly design initiative to make famous works of art more accessible to those that are suffering from a lack of sight or blindness by turning the iconic works into 3D sculptures. This way, those with sight issues can use touch to interact with the artwork and feel the painter's intentions without having to see them.

Losing one's sight is a tragic circumstance and one that can leave many at a loss to enjoy viewing their surroundings. The Unseen Art project offers a new way to experience art thanks to Marc Dillion that 3D-prints famous works such as the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci that people can touch. The 3D nature of the piece lets people feel their way through the work through touch to understand the masterpiece.
