AI Describing AI—Harold Cohen: Aaron

Thurs, May 9, 2024
5:30–7 pm

Floor 8

Open to people who are blind and live with low vision

Thursday, May 9, 5:30–7 pm with a reception to follow.

Join us for an experiment in verbal description and AI. Our two guides, Leona Godin (blind author of There Plant Eyes) and Paula Stutman (Whitney verbal description educator) will work together to provide thoughtful descriptions using a blend of Be My AI and the expertise of an art educator. The exhibition Harold Cohen: Aaron encompasses artwork from the 70s until Harold Cohen’s death in 2016. He devoted his life to exploring the potential of artificial intelligence to translate an artist’s knowledge and process into code. All of the works on display were made with AI and include drawings, paintings, videos, and projections.

This verbal description tour has been crafted for the access of people who are blind or live with low vision. Sighted guides are welcome. To RSVP or if you have any questions, please email
