Verbal Description and Touch Tour:
Glenn Ligon: AMERICA

FRI, May 6, 2011
11 am–12:30 pm

Glenn Ligon: AMERICA is the first comprehensive mid-career retrospective devoted to this pioneering New York–based artist. Throughout his career, Ligon (b. 1960) has pursued an incisive exploration of American history, literature, and society across a body of work that builds critically on the legacies of modern painting and more recent conceptual art. 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 as space is limited.
