The Memorial Art Gallery is delighted to offer detailed verbal descriptions of selected works of art in the Gallery’s collection to visitors who are blind or visually impaired. Popular favorites in the Gallery’s collection have been chosen to launch this new program. These descriptions are available as recordings via cell phones, in Braille at the Admission Desk, and on the Gallery’s website. On the website, the descriptions are offered at original speed, and at a slightly faster version for those who are accustomed to the speed of screen reader programs.
To access these descriptions via cell phone, dial 585.627.4132. Following the introduction, you will be prompted to enter a number for each artwork. Please be aware your regular cell phone charges apply to these calls.
This project was supported in part with funds from the Elizabeth L. and Donald M. Cohn Endowment of the Memorial Art Gallery and the John Steuart Curry Foundation.
