We're back for another season of Art Beyond Sight tours! Art Beyond Sight is a free tour program for visitors with low or no vision and sighted guests. We'll kick off the season on Wednesday, October 23, from 1-2:30 pm<http://www.seattleartmuseum.org/Visit/Calendar/Events?EventID=65653> when we explore the bold and powerful photographs of contemporary South African artist Zanele Muholi<http://www.seattleartmuseum.org/Exhibitions/Details?EventId=65298>.

Tours begin with light refreshments starting at 1 pm in Arnold Board Room, on the second floor of the museum. Please note that based on feedback from attendees last year, we have moved the tours to an earlier start time. Also new this year is an easier RSVP process-including online registration!
