Join us for a free tour in American Sign Language of Blues for Smoke, without voice interpretation. The tour begins at 7 pm, with a free pre-tour reception from 6–7 pm.
Blues for Smoke brings into focus a wide range of contemporary art, music, literature, and film through the lens of the blues. Featuring the work of visual artists such as David Hammons, Zoe Leonard, and Jean-Michel Basquiat alongside the music of jazz, blues, and hip-hop legends, the exhibition considers how the blues might help us understand themes of place, performance, and identity in recent art.
Please note: we regret that complimentary tickets will no longer be available for ASL students. Museum staff/interpreters will not be able to sign student assignments.
Admission to tour and reception is free. Registration is required; RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bypass the admissions line and pick up your tickets at the check-in location in the Museum lobby.
