Mindful Museum: Virtual Sensory Journey through Art

Join us for a virtual sensory journey to Spain to explore the painting A Man Scraping Chocolate. This event is intended for adults who are blind, low vision, or have a learning need that would benefit from a sensory-style experience.

After a short guided meditation and audio description of the artwork, you will be invited to step into the painting virtually with a mindful observation and discussion. Registration includes a small kit of sensory objects that participants engage with during the observation. These are mailed to registrants in advance. Audio description and captioning are provided.

Space is limited. For ages 16 and up. Registration closes Saturday, November 28.
