Art Signs: Gallery Talks in American Sign Language (ASL)
Experience Art Signs
It's a busy Saturday at the Museum, and a knot of visitors is in animated conversation with their gallery guide. They are part of the Museum's monthly Art Signs program, featuring 30-minute gallery talks presented by deaf gallery guides in American Sign Language (ASL). ASL interpreters voice information and observations allowing hearing and deaf audiences to discover art together under the leadership of a deaf guide.
We invite you to come and explore our rich collection of American art with an Art Signs gallery guide. Click here for upcoming Art Signs presentation dates. Join our Art Signs mailing list and receive e-mail updates on upcoming programs and other special ASL events at the Museum. Contact Carol Wilson at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
