Get hands on with art! This December will focus on Ganesha: The Playful Protector. Touch a model of a storyteller’s box to discover how the box opens and moves to help the storyteller share a story. Then, explore a textile replica of a modern Indian temple wall hanging and follow the raised outline of the image of a four-armed Ganesha and his vehicle rat.
Tactile Tables are regularly scheduled, bimonthly opportunities to experience art in a hands-on way, facilitated by specially trained docents. These tables are free with admission and are open to all visitors who desire a multisensory, hands-on experience with art, including those visitors who are blind or have low vision.
Tactile Tables are offered on the second Friday and Saturday of every other month (February, April, June, August, October, December) from 11 am to 1 pm. Tactile Tables are included in general admission (free for youth age 18 and younger), no reservations necessary.
