I'm not sure if we've been involved with this, but it may well be time to publicize this further and to speak with the folks at the Walters about a tour.
Touch and the Enjoyment of Sculpture: Exploring the Appeal of Renaissance Statuettes
January 21, 2012 - April 15, 2012
10:00 AM - 05:00 PM
This groundbreaking focus show will explore the implications of tactile perception for enjoying sculpture, studying how the brain reacts to tactile stimuli from European Renaissance art-a period marked by a new availability of small "collectibles" meant to be held.
Here's the URL for the exhibit. http://thewalters.org/eventscalendar/eventdetails.aspx?e=2207
I sure hope the site is accessible.
