Whitney Verbal Description and Touch Tours provide an opportunity for visitors who are blind or partially sighted and their companions to experience the 2012 Biennial through vivid description and tactile opportunities. These small group tours, which provide in-depth focus on a selection of artworks in a variety of media, are offered when the Museum is closed to the general public.
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.
