Verbal and Touch Tour @ Whitney Museum

February 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Verbal Description and Touch Tour
ANDY WARHOL—FROM A TO B AND BACK AGAIN
Andy Warhol—From A to B and Back Again illuminates the breadth, depth, and interconnectedness of the artist’s production: from his beginnings as a commercial
illustrator in the 1950s, to his iconic Pop masterpieces of the early 1960s, to the experimental work in film and other mediums from the 1960s and 70s,
to his innovative use of readymade abstraction and the painterly sublime in the 1980s. His repetitions, distortions, camouflaging, incongruous color, and
recycling of his own imagery challenge our faith in images and the value of cultural icons, anticipating the profound effects and issues of the current
digital age.

Space is limited and reservations are required. Please call (646) 666-5574 or email AccessFeedback@Whitney.org to RSVP.

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.
