Blind and visually impaired visitors, as well as the “seeing” public, are invited to enjoy works in the permanent collection and two paintings in the exhibition V. S. Gaitonde. Painting as Process, Painting as Life by means of bas-relief simulations. The program has been made possible by a grant from the Gordon and Llura Gund Foundation.
