Verbal Description Sensory Tours

Accessibility and Community Programs Coordinator Teri Fallesen (left) leads a Verbal Description Sensory Tour of the special exhibition Imperfections By Chance: Paul Feeley Retrospective, 1954–1966.

The former Art Sense-Ations and Please Touch programs are merging into a new tour offering: the Verbal Description Sensory Tour. 

Verbal Description Sensory Tours are for adults who are blind or partially sighted. An in-depth verbal description tour is enhanced by engaging several senses, often including, but not limited to, the sense of touch. Tours are given of select works from the Albright-Knox’s Collection and special exhibitions; additional sensory experiences are provided during or immediately following the tour.

The program is free of charge, but enrollment is limited and advanced registration is required. To register, or for more information, please contact Accessibility and Community Programs Coordinator Teri Fallesen at 716.270.8249, or
