On September 19, 2013, individuals who are visually impaired experienced the Albright-Knox’s current exhibition Cubes and Rectangles, Boxes and Containers through an Art Sense-Ations Verbal Description Tour. The tour provided in-depth descriptions for five different works, two of which were also made accessible through touch.
