Touch Tours

by ck

Did you know that many museums– the MFA, the Met –will offer touch tours to art lovers who are blind or partially sighted? I first heard about this last winter when the Globe did a quick article about students from Perkins School for the Blind visiting the Museum. Apparently the MFA gave Helen Keller a touch tour while she was a student at Perkins.

This is all to say that I came across these photographs by Matt Ducklo and I find them so affecting.
