Event co-chairs included Solange Ferguson, Elizabeth Segerstrom, and Darren Star.
Reaching for the Statues: A Tour for Blind and Low Vision Veterans
We were recently honored with the opportunity to lead a group of blind and low-vision veterans through a tour of the Franklin D. Murphy Sculpture Garden. This was our first tour for blind and low-vision guests. Preparing a tour for those whose primary means of accessing art are haptic and senses other than sight required us to reconsider assumptions about how we perceive art.
