Introducing American Sign Language Tours of the Denver Art Museum (Video)

This October, the Denver Art Museum launched its first Collection Highlights Tour in both English and American Sign Language (ASL). As part of the museum’s commitment to accessibility, the DAM aims to increase its ongoing program offerings so that more activities are available on a regular basis and without special request. Examples now include the ASL Collection Highlights Tour, Tactile Tables, and Art & About Tours, which are for people with early-stage Alzheimer’s and their care partners.

On Collection Highlights Tours expert docents highlight a selection of the museum’s objects from across time and around the world. Our interpreter, Cory Fuller, is a knowledgeable and skilled interpreter with ten years of experience at the DAM. Cory, along with the docent tour guide, will be available 20 minutes before the tour begins and 20 minutes after it ends to answer any questions from visitors.

ASL Collection Highlights Tours take place the third Saturday of each month from 11–11:45 am. Cory will be available from 10:40 am–12:05 pm. Visitors should meet in the El Pomar Grand Atrium of the Hamilton Building, Level 1. Tours are included in museum admission. Members are free. For more information, watch our video below.
