Verbal Description Online: Exploring Representations of Disability in the Whitney Collection

FRI, July 16, 2021
10–11:30 am

Online, via Zoom

Verbal Description Online provides an opportunity for visitors who are blind or have low vision to experience the richness and diversity of twentieth and twenty-first-century American art through vivid description. Ninety-minute sessions are free-of-charge and are offered monthly on Friday mornings through Zoom and over the phone. On the occasion of the thirty-first anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), this tour will focus on themes of disability in works in the Whitney’s collection.

This event will have automated closed captions through Zoom. Live captioning is available for public programs and events upon request with seven business days advance notice. We will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made outside of that window of time. To place a request, please contact us at accessfeedback@whitney.org or (646) 666-5574 (voice). Relay and voice calls welcome.
