Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

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

Many museums offer tours specifically geared to meet the needs of visitors with visual impairments, both in person and online. Following are listings for two upcoming virtual tours:

On March 4, 2024 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm ET and March 6, 2024 from 2 to 4 pm ET a tour will be held of the exhibition Going Dark: The Contemporary Figure at the Edge of Visibility as part of the Guggenheim Museum’s “Mind’s Eye” verbal description program. The exhibition “highlights a multigenerational group of artists who engage the ‘semi-visible’ figure—representations that are partially obscured,” some of which are “literally darkened.” These artists consider questions regarding “social visibility” using the concept of “going dark.” The same program will be offered both days but space is limited. It is also taking place in person in New York City on March 11, 2024 and March 13, 2024. To receive a Zoom link for the virtual programs, RSVP three days before the program by calling (212) 360-4355 or via email: [email protected]. For more details, read the Guggenheim webpage on Mind’s Eye: Going Dark Part 3. Learn more here about the Mind’s Eye Programs.

On March 5, 2024 from 6 to 7:30 pm, Giants: Art from the Dean Collection of Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keyes will offer a “vivid verbal exploration” of works by “art-world giants” from all over the world. Participants will discover artworks that “both critique and celebrate our culture.” For more information and a link to register, visit the Brooklyn Museum webpage for the Virtual Verbal Description Tour: Giants.
