Verbal Description and Touch Tour:
Singular Visions

FRI, Mar 25, 2011
11 am–12:30 pm

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.

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.

This event is free of charge. Please call 212-570-7789 or RSVP to AccessFeedback@Whitney.org as space is limited.
