The exhibition will feature non-visual curatorial methods and artwork that is accessible by its multi-sensory nature. In addition to advancing the field of art accessibility, the exhibition will also provide a meaningful experience for the sighted, giving participants an opportunity to branch out of strictly visual modes of engagement with artworks.
PLEASE TOUCH THE ARTWORK is a community-based and community-funded project. While most of the artists represented are located in Chicagoland, the contributors to this project form a much larger, diverse community of activists who are working to increase the accessibility of art around the country.
