This month's movie is Incredibles 2. There is a "seizure warning" due to some extended scenes that may trigger this condition.

 


Second of two talks. Vincent deLuise, MD will focus on several famous Artists and their Eye Disease: is disease an obstacle or an opportunity for an artist's genus to blossom and flower? He will discuss Goya, Monet, van Gogh, Degas and O'Keefe in detail. Dr. deLuise will then discuss "The Literature of Blindness" exploring the works of Homer, Milton, James Joyce and Helen Keller, and how their visual loss shaped their writing and how they used other sense in their writing to explore their reality and their enduring works of literature.
