Verbal Description and Touch Tour:
Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection

FRI, Apr 22, 2011
11 am–12:30 pm

Legacy: The Emily Fisher Landau Collection presents a selection of works from the historic gift of art pledged to the Whitney in May 2010 by longtime Museum trustee Emily Fisher Landau. Considered one of the preeminent collectors of postwar art in the United States, Emily Fisher Landau’s personal approach to collecting has long paralleled that of the Whitney, an institution similarly devoted to the art of its time. Please join us for a free guided tour of this exhibition when the Museum is closed to the general public.

Whitney verbal description tours provide an opportunity for visitors who are blind or partially sighted and their companions to experience the richness and diversity of twentieth and twenty-first century American art through vivid description and tactile opportunities.

This event is free of charge. Please call (212) 570-7789 or RSVP to AccessFeedback@Whitney.org as space is limited.
