AUDIO-DESCRIBED TOUCH TOURS AT THE OHIO CRAFT MUSEUM

June 8th and June 17th, 2017 

The Ohio Craft Museum will offer two audio-described touch tours of the “Best of 2017” exhibition. This juried collection features contemporary fine craft works by 51 artists working in ceramics, wood, metal, fiber, glass and more. Some of the works are functional pieces while others make artistic statements by borrowing familiar forms or techniques. Designed for visitors who are blind or partially sighted and their companions, the tour offers the ability to experience the richness and diversity of the crafts on display. The guide, Jane Ehrenfeld, will combine verbal descriptions with the tactile experience of touching samples of materials, facsimiles or the artworks themselves.

The tours will take place Thursday, June 8th at 6 pm and Saturday, June 17th at 2 pm. Space is limited for this free program: please RSVP by calling the museum at (614) 486-4402 or email info@ohiocraft.org. This program has been made possible by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council.

The Ohio Craft Museum is located at 1665 West Fifth Avenue, Columbus, Ohio 43212. Hours: Monday–Friday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m.; Saturday–Sunday, 1–4 p.m. Admission and parking are free. For more information, call (614) 486-4402, or see our website at www.ohiocraft.org.
