Experiencing Art through Touch at The Met

Ducklo-1 Christy Ferer and the Vidicom team applaud the Metropolitan Museum on their long history of making its collections accessible to blind and partially sighted visitors through touch and description. In fact, The Met has a Touch Collection, featuring  a selection of artwork for the purpose of tactile exploration by blind and partially sighted visitors.  What a wonderful offering.

Check out this Q&A featuring photographer Matt Ducklo who has captured participants on these tours.
