Arizona’s Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum now offers EnChroma glasses for colorblind guests

The Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum offers color accessibility.

EnChroma glasses help colorblind people experience vibrancy. They use light-filtering technology that helps those with red-green vision impairment.

The standard color spectrum is only visible to colorblinds. Many colors can appear dull, muted, and difficult to differentiate. 

Bodhi Wallace and Sorin Wallace were the first to test the glasses. Both brothers are colorblind which means that they have never seen all of their father’s paintings.

“We didn’t know that our sons were colorblind until more recently, so I’ve always been painting with bright colors and was surprised that they couldn’t see them like I can see them,” their father said.

Anyone can use the glasses. The exhibit will be open through January. However, the glasses will remain.
