MADISON (WKOW) -- A unique exhibit in Madison is proving you don't have to have eyesight to create great artwork. 

The Wisconsin Council of the Blind and Visually Impaired is hosting the art gallery called "Bright Sights: Six Ways of Seeing." It's at the McPherson Eye Research Institute on the 9th floor of the Wisconsin Institutes of Medical Research. 

Denise Jess with the organization says six blind artists have contributed artwork to the gallery to show people a unique perspective. 

The exhibit is in its final week. The closing show is Thursday, May 25 from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. The address is 1111 Highland Avenue in Madison.
