Double Meaning: a Tactile Journey through the Peggy Guggenheim Collection
|Sunday, March 15, 2020, 3 p.m.||For children ages 6 to 12|
The museum accessibility program for blind and visually impaired visitors endeavors to make art accessible to all. It is open to the seeing public as well. A tactile tour led by Valeria Bottalico, program curator, will be followed by a sculpture workshop with the blind artist Felice Tagliaferri.
Two works on view will be “explored” through touch: the male figure (pombia) and the equestrian figure, both made of wood, probably in the first half of the twentieth century by an unrecorded Senufo artist from the Côte d’Ivoire.
