Our free Multisensory Tours and Descriptive Teleconference Tours welcome adults who are blind or partially sighted to learn about selected works in our special exhibitions and works created through our Public Art Initiative. Tour themes change monthly and include in-depth verbal descriptions and other sensory activities.

In order to ensure a safe and socially distant environment for our staff and visitors, programs for visitors who are blind or partially sighted will be offered virtually while we continue to gather information on the status of the pandemic. As with in-person programs, places are limited and advance registration is required. To register, or for more information, please contact Access & Community Programs Coordinator Karen Duval at 716.270.8249 or
