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 Richard Artschwager!

Richard Artschwager’s first solo exhibition was in 1965 at the age of forty-two at Leo Castelli Gallery. Since then his work has been shown throughout the world, and his enigmatic and diverse oeuvre has been influential, yet not thoroughly understood. This exhibition is a comprehensive review of Artschwager’s remarkable creative exploration of the mediums of sculpture, painting, and drawing and the first retrospective exhibition of Artschwager’s work since one organized at the Whitney in 1988.

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.
