Close Looking: Visual Description of a Magic Poster

Monday, September 14, 11 am

Join Assistant Curator of Community Programs, Melissa Smith, as she shares an audio description of an artwork, one of the techniques used during our Multisensory Program to help remove barriers to our collections. You will hear and learn about creative audio description, a type of spoken language describing visual images or objects, which enables audiences to engage and pursue their own journey in relation to visual art. We will explore a poster of Adelaide Herrmann, one of the first female magicians, from the Illusions: The Art of Magic exhibition.
