lease Touch the Art is a multi-sensory exhibition aimed at creating an immersive artistic experience that engages all of the senses. Not only does Please Touch the Art challenge visitors to consider how they may engage with a work of art beyond seeing, it also challenges visual artists to consider how their work engages a diverse range of audience members. There are 52 pieces of art in this exhibition. As you navigate this exhibition, you are encouraged to take your time with each work of art. Many of the pieces tap into multiple senses including sight, touch, sound, and even smell! The exhibit addresses issues about the nature of aesthetic appreciation and perception of art. It also provides an inclusive and accessible experience for all visitors with the use of braille and large print gallery guides, audio guides, tactile maps, and navigational tools.
