Get hands on with art! This April we'll feature some of the creatures from Stampede: Animals in Art.
Pet a pint-sized pooch based on a sculpture from the Colima region of Western Mexico or handle some animal-inspired silverware. Designed for visitors with low vision but open to all who enjoy a multi-sensory museum experience.
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.
