Tactile Tables: From Services for the Visually Impaired to Access for All (2015 Cincinatti)

Denver Art Museum

"Tactile paintings" were created to enhance the experiences of visually-impaired visitors by helping them to form mental images of museum objects through touch.  The popularity of this approach led to an ongoing tactile tables program and is also used with people with developmental disabilities and adults with dementia.
