For people living with vision impairment, getting out socially can be challenging. It may seem unlikely that visiting an art museum could be a social event for the blind. The Seattle Art Museum does not think so. Every month, the museum hosts guided tours complete with trained escorts prepared to describe art pieces to the sight-impaired. Learn how a museum uses art for community building and social enrichment for those living with vision impairment.
If you are experiencing vision loss, we have programs to help you adjust. Visit our Programs Page to learn more.
