Verbal Description and Touch Tour: I, YOU, WE

FRI, Jun 28, 2013
11 am–12:30 pm

Whitney verbal description tours provide an opportunity for visitors who are blind or low vision and their companions to experience the richness and diversity of 20th and 21st century American art through vivid description and tactile opportunities. Please join us for a tour of I, YOU, WE.

I, you, we: three very commonplace words. These pronouns—with all their implied complexities of meaning—provide an unexpected guide for assessing the works of art from the 1980s and early 1990s in the Museum’s collection. What becomes apparent in this survey of paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, and photographs is how the personal, social, and collective issues and concerns of the artists of this time are still relevant several decades later.

The Whitney is located at 945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street. Please call (212) 570-7789 or email AccessFeedback@Whitney.org to RSVP or learn more. Space is limited.
