On January 30, 2018, members of the National Federation of the Blind hosted a reception at the Newseum in Washington, DC. The event honored John Olson’s work in developing tactile fine art printing. The exhibit showcased tactile renderings of photos, with audio activated by touch sensors embedded in the prints.
