Sensory Empowerment Program

As a visual arts institution, the Museum has a responsibility to make art accessible to all. In our Sensory Empowerment Program (SEP) tours, specially-trained docents present the Museum’s collection and selected special exhibitions through multi-sensory education. Using verbal descriptions, tactile models based on original artworks, specially selected sculptures, and music, these tours allow visitors to experience art in a way they may not be able to on their own.
