Verbal Description and Touch Tour
Topic: MARY CORSE: A SURVEY IN LIGHT
Mary Corse’s first solo museum survey is a long overdue examination of this singular artist’s career. This survey will bring together for the first time Corse’s key bodies of work—including her early shaped canvases, freestanding sculptures, and light encasements that she engineered in the mid-1960s, in her early twenties, as well as her breakthrough White Light Paintings, begun in 1968, and the Black Earth
Series that she initiated after moving in 1970 from downtown Los Angeles to Topanga Canyon, where she lives and works today.
Space is limited and reservations are required. Please call

Whitney verbal description tours provide an opportunity for visitors who are blind or have low vision to experience the richness and diversity of twentieth- and twenty- first-century American art. Explore the Whitney’s collection or special exhibitions with a highly skilled museum educator trained to provide vivid, detailed verbal description of the works on display, while experiencing a selection
of objects through touch. Manual wheelchairs, stools, and assistive listening devices are available for all touch programs.
These free, 90-minute tours take place when the galleries are closed to the general public. Tours are held monthly as well as by request with three weeks advance notice.
