Becoming a Blind Magician with Chad Allen

This program was organized by Andrew McGregor #1188.



Chad Allen is a multidisciplinary artist and writer who happens to be blind. He is the creator of the Audio comic UNSEEN which premiered at the Exploratorium Museum in San Francisco as a part the exhibit on identity titled Self, Made. Chad is also a magician and has appeared on Penn & Teller: Fool Us and America’s Got Talent. His goal is to give audiences an opportunity to reframe their perceptions of blind people and vision. “You don’t see art with your eyes. You see with your brain, and that’s what I’m trying to teach people more than anything.”
