Tactile Transmissions at the Gross Foundation

September 10 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

FREE and open to the public; RSVP required

The Renee & Chaim Gross Foundation is excited to announce the continuation of “Tactile Transmissions,” a 90-minute Access Program geared toward visitors who are blind or partially sighted. “Tactile Transmissions” encourages participants to touch and create while surrounded by Gross’s sculptures and drawings. The program focuses on the historic workspace, materials, and current tactile exhibition, “Teaching Through Touch: Works by Chaim Gross”, utilizing verbal description, touch, and making. Visitors will work with our talented educators Nitza Danieli, Pamela Lawton, Annie Leist, and Deborah Lutz.

Each session will have a different theme:
September 10 – “Materials Speak”
October 1 – “Reading Faces”
November 12 – “African Arts and Influences”
December 10 – “Finding Lines”

Due to limited space, please RSVP to Brittany Cassandra by phone 212-529-4906 or email bcassandra@rcgrossfoundation.org. If you would like to bring a guest, please let us know.
