"Please Touch the Art" invites blind, low vision, and sighted visitors to use their sense of touch to experience artwork. The art exhibition addresses issues surrounding the aesthetic appreciation and perception of art. Can "visual" art be perceived through touch in addition to or instead of sight? The accompanying humanities gallery will provide context about the evolution of inclusivity in arts programming using objects, technology, and textual resources. Please join us for an opening reception and panel discussion with guest curator Georgina Kleege, disability studies scholar and author of "More Than Meets the Eye: What Blindness Brings to Art."
