Verbal Description and Touch Tour: Sinister Pop

FRI, Mar 29, 2013
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 20th and 21st century American art through vivid description and tactile opportunities. Please join us for a tour of Sinister Pop.

Sinister Pop presents an inventive take on the Museum's rich and diverse holdings of Pop art from the movement's inception in the early 1960s through its aftershocks a decade later. Although Pop art often calls to mind a celebration of postwar consumer culture, this exhibition focuses on Pop's darker side, as it distorts and critiques the American dream. 

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