Danielle collected the small trinkets to use on a Verbal Description and Touch Tour, in which visitors who are blind or partially sighted experience the art through vivid description and the chance to touch objects similar to those on view.
The tiny objects live on the windowsill next to Danielle’s desk. Her favorite are the tiny yellow rubber gloves. They are just like gloves used for washing dishes, but they are only one inch long!
If a person collected something as a kid, they might continue to collect those things as an adult. Perhaps the things they collect have good memories attached to them, and they might even be more valuable someday.
Desi uses her collection of postcards to decorate her room. She loves to stare at her walls and pick out which postcard she likes best. Of course, she can never make up her mind! Right now, her favorite one is a reproduction of a painting by Friedensreich Hundertwasser that she bought in Vienna, Austria.
