Verbal Description and Touch Tour:
Singular Visions

FRI, Feb 24, 2012
11 am–12:30 pm

Whitney verbal description tours provide an opportunity for visitors who are blind or partially sighted and their companions to experience the richness and diversity of twentieth and twenty-first century American art through vivid description and tactile opportunities. Please join us for a tour of the new installation of Singular Visions.

Singular Visions presents twelve postwar highlights from the Museum’s holdings, each in its own space, in order to create intimate and compelling encounters with a single work of art. Each piece was chosen to convey a distinct impression and a specific sense of its maker’s vision, whether somber or celebratory, figurative or abstract, quiet or bold. Through their variety of mediums, sizes, styles, and subjects, the works in Singular Visions encourage a range of powerful experiences and reveal how contemporary artists have stretched the very boundaries of what an artwork can be.

Admission is free; reservations are required. Please call (212) 570-7789 or email AccessFeedback@whitney.org to RSVP. Participants will meet in the Whitney Museum lobby. To learn more about this program and the Whitney’s access services, visit: http://whitney.org/Education/Access.
