Double Meaning: a Tactile Journey through the Peggy Guggenheim Collection
|Saturday, March 14, 2020, 2 p.m.||For adults|
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.
