Visually Impaired Program: Artists with Disabilities

May 27 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In this program for adults, held the second Saturday of each month, specially trained docents present the Museum’s collection by means of verbal descriptions, three-dimensional tactile models based on original works of art, and sculpture. The experience may be enhanced by related music and/or art-making to provide multi-sensory access to the visual arts.

Join docent Mary Helen Crowe for Artists with Disabilities. Dale Chihuly, Claude Monet, and Josiah Wedgwood all had different, potentially career-ending disabilities. Yet, they all found ways to overcome their disabilities and become masters of their art form.

Space is limited; reservations are required. Please RSVP by Friday, May 22.
