From the Artist’s Hand to Yours

Posted on February 20, 2019

I became convinced of the Museum’s need for a dedicated tactile art installation in May 2017, when former curator of exhibitions Andy McGivern and I attended a National Federation for the Blind Tactile Art and Tactile Graphics Symposium in Boulder, Colorado.

December is that special time of the year when school events, family gatherings, meal planning, travel, and dozens of other non-holiday projects on the to-do list start to drive most of us up the wall. While staff at the Woodson Art Museum aren’t anxiously scaling the walls yet, we do have quite a bit on our plates these days and even more exciting projects on the horizon.
