Free Virtual Museum Tours for Visitors Who Are Blind or Have Low Vision

“Seen and Unseen: Water” on December 7, 2023 from 2:30 to 4 pm ET: Seen and Unseen, a series of virtual tours offered by The Noguchi Museum and designed for adults who are blind or have low vision, “illuminate Isamu Noguchi’s art through verbal description and engaging conversation.” Their upcoming program will explore Noguchi’s sculptural designs and public installations that use water as a material that can shape space and the environment.

“Other-Worlding” and “to reverberate tenderly” on December 16, 2023 from 2 to 4 pm ET: Visitors who are blind or have low vision are invited to join artists Emilie L. Gossiaux and Sonia Louise Davis for a virtual verbal description tour, from the Queens Museum, of their respective exhibitions, “Other-Worlding” and “to reverberate tenderly.”  Both artists “find common ground in their pursuit of softness and joy as a mode of resistance,” using media and approaches through sculpture, drawing, painting, figuration, abstraction, and improvisation. Each of them will describe three works from their solo exhibitions and discuss their art with participants.
