This program is for people who want to learn more about art in an informative and interactive setting. These programs, with the exception of June, are held on the first Thursday of each month, January through October. Coffee and light refreshments are available.

Visually Impaired Program: The Language of Art

August 8 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

In this program for adults, 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.

Explore artworks by different artists at different times and in different places. But, they all have one thing in common: the artists deliberately created their art in such a way to get us to see what they wanted us to see, think what they wanted us to think, and feel what they wanted us to feel. Discover how the artists used the elements of art including line, color, pattern, texture, and light and shadow.

Space is limited; reservations are required. Please RSVP by Monday, August 3.

VIP tours are also available for school-age or adult groups. To reserve your spot or learn more about group tours, call 205.254.2964.
