The next Art Beyond Sight tour of the Seattle Art Museum for visitors with low or no vision is on Wednesday, February 15th at 1:30 pm at the Seattle Art Museum located at 1300 First Ave., Seattle 98101. The February 15th tour will include visual descriptions of objects from the exhibition Big Picture: Art After 1945. Before the tour, social time will take place in a different location than usual. Arrive at 1 pm for light refreshments in Simons Board Room.
Because of this change in rooms, the entrance has changed as well. Visitors will be greeted by docents at First Ave. and University St., also known as the Hammering Man entrance. Visitors taking ACCESS transportation or taxi may request that someone meet you outside of this entrance and escort you back outside following the tour. Please request this assistance when you register. Docents can help all visitors with wayfinding to the Simons Board Room where the program will begin. The tour starts at 1:30 pm and lasts approximately 1.5 hours.
Admission to the Museum is free for all Art Beyond Sight participants, but advance registration is required. To register, reply to this email or call Kelsey Donahue at (206) 654-3133. Attendees are welcome to bring a companion on the Art Beyond Sight tour free of charge. Please let us know when you register if you will be bringing a companion-including, four-legged guides.
