Whitney Signs is a free American Sign Language gallery tour with voice interpretation. Join us this month for a tour of Blues for Smoke at 3 pm, with a free post-tour reception from 4–5 pm. Please note that the time for this program has changed; the free reception will occur after the gallery tour. The normal schedule for Whitney Signs and ASL Tours will resume on March 22.
Blues for Smoke brings into focus a wide range of contemporary art, music, literature, and film through the lens of the blues. Featuring the work of visual artists such as David Hammons, Zoe Leonard, and Jean-Michel Basquiat alongside the music of jazz, blues, and hip-hop legends, the exhibition considers how the blues might help us understand themes of place, performance, and identity in recent art.
Please note: we regret that complimentary tickets will no longer be available for ASL students. Museum staff/interpreters will not be able to sign student assignments.
Admission to tour and reception is free. Registration is required; RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please bypass the admissions line and pick up your tickets at the check-in location in the Museum lobby.
